I am glad that justice is being served (so far) and only that any politician who has done wrong will be prosecuted and convicted in a like manner. Nothing to do with color, its simply a matter of abiding by the law.

What do you mean HIS president? Pres Obama would never have won the election if it were just black people voting. 12% of the population cannot elect a president.
Besides that, Pres O has character and class..something unheard of for the last 8 years.
Let us not forget the unforgettable and un-pardonable CRIMES of Nixon.
He was forced to resign in disgrace. Tricky Dick's legacy will supercede that of any other politician.

If you live in this country then he's YOUR president as well, whether you voted for him or not.
Barack Obama has nothing to do with N.O.'s political scandals that we know of anyway, so why even throw that in?
