The President, Vice-President, and Speaker of the House:

And only one is a white dude.

Still hasn't stopped amazing me.

And let me just say (admitting unreservedly that this is not a fair comparison) that this part of Obama's speech:
And dropping out of high school is no longer an option. It's not just quitting on yourself, it's quitting on your country — and this country needs and values the talents of every American.
made me immediately think of this, from Obama's immediate predecessor:
To those of you who received honors, awards and distinctions, I say, well done.

And to the C students, I say, you too can be president of the United States.

Yours is the 2nd blog entry I read this PM that chose to say "O's predecessor" instead of "B***"
