“I remember election night 2008 so clearly. I showed my 1-year-old daughter a picture of Obama and explained to her that this is the President. He’s the first President she will ever know and he happens to be African-American. My daughter won’t have the same revelation we had, like, ‘Oh, my God! I thought I would never see it happen!’ For her it will be the norm, and nothing tops that."
