It seems as though I ought to write something about the election, but I’m darned if I can think of anything that hasn’t already been said. The Dharma connection is obvious, so there’s no point in belaboring that point. Ditto the historical angle, the racial angle, the political angle.
It has all been said, is pretty darned clear to those who care to see, and will be repeated many times over the next couple of centuries. For this is a millennial event; the most powerful country in history is for the first time going to be led by a representative who is not only of it, but also of a lineage that has become one of the least-enfranchised on Earth.
We have proven that Yes, We Can. Now we must show that We Can Continue.
