See one entry ago (yesterday).
I thought about it, and realized I was UNDERSTATING the sheer magnitude of the moment, if Kyla becomes the first woman President 20-25 years from now.
She would not only be the first woman Preisdent. She would not only be the first HISPANIC (basent being beat to the punch in the ensuing 20 years, which is entirely possible--probably MORE likely than a woman after the Hillary fiasco) President. She would also be the frist NATIVE AMERICAN President.
Hold on, you say. Kyla can't possibly be all of those things. Wrong. Remember that there is NO DEFINITION POSSIBLE for who is a Native American and who is not (as 50% white guy Barack "World" Obama proves as to definitions of this sort of thing). It seems pretty certain that I have SOME Native American "blood", although family history is a little vague and uncertain on exactly how much. Say it is only 5%. SO WHAT. If Kyla feels like calling herself a Native American because of that 5%, can ANYBODY say she is wrong? Tell me YOUR definition of a "Native American". The local Tigua Indians accept 1/8, and I don't think that there ARE any Tiguas with much GREATER percentage than that. There may well be people accepted as members of the "tribe" with a lesser percentage. There was some problem about ever getting them accepted as an Indian tribe, when there were no "pure bloods" around. As I have said, there is NO DEFINITIION, and even trying to come up with one puts you in a racist position.
Dirty little secret (again, but you won't listen): MOST Americans (not to mention people of the world) are of MIXED RACE and ethnicity. That is becoming more true all of the time. The entire concept of "race" is of doubtful usefullness, and getting more doubtful daily.
In any event, the election of Kyla to the Presidency will be so much more "historic" than the nomination of Obama, it is not even close. Don't say you weren't WARNED.
