We've known for several months that Barack Obama was going to win the Democratic presidential nomination. And both before and after that point, we've all been discussing the pros and cons of Obama, the contest between Obama and Clinton, and the contest between Obama and McCain.

I realized, when Obama's nomination finally became official Wednesday night, that I had (and maybe a few other people had, as well) lost track of how historic the occasion is, being the first time a black person is nominated for president by a major party. Whether one supports him or not, I think it's appropriate to note that.
