ok, ok, ok... getting closer

I feel guilty being proud of our first African American president because I'm not black.

I'm proud of the man and his intellectual capacity, his sense of calm & rationality, his refusal to back-bite. I'm proud of his politics and projected policies-- and these things I can own simply as a person.

The other bit, though, that first sentence up there? That's what I'm having quite a tussle about
