Barack can bring people together.  It won’t be enough to get him elected president of the United States, but it would sure be something.  Personally, I don’t think America will ever have a black president.  The racial divide runs too deep.  But Barack will be a good test if he does run for the Oval Office.  If America can’t find him qualified and appealing enough to elect, that would tell you just about everything you need to know.  But I don’t want to limit the focus — and our perception of him — to that one question.
Instead of asking what Barack Obama can become, we should ask ourselves what we can do to become more like Barack Obama.
