Obama wasn't elected because he was black, though it does have a significance. AFTER his policies and political skills, his ethnicity is a factor; a factor because he represents the evolution of American citizens, who are increasingly non-white or mixed-race. AFTER the campaign platforms, America now has a more representative figure of our population. Only time will tell if his administration will succeed or fail, but at least we now know that the job of president is truly an open competition.
