208 years and counting....

Back during Bush's first term, I remember wondering if the more than 200 year old Democrat party was finally going down for good--and, apart from being extremely happy to be wrong, I'm hoping that Republicans are realizing something about this country.

No longer are the majority of political participants white and Christian. America is not the homogenous WASP factory it used to be--there are way more types of people here with a voice than ever before, and the youth in particular will not wait patiently for our elders to do things for us.

Maybe America is finally starting to look more like a "melting pot" than its usual tossed salad--I wonder.
