1. Obama is the George Washington of our time

Washington will always be known as the First President, and every civics and history text book from 2008 going forward will note Barack Obama as the first Black President (more so now that he has been twice elected). In their own way, these two men will always be the standard by which all who follow are measured.

The same will happen for women when Hillary is elected in 2016

That's actually some very heavy fucking responsibility, right?

It makes me wonder what future myths will spring up around Obama, they way they sprang up around Washington? What will be the Obama cherry tree story?

I bet it will have something to do with his birth certificate, but in a positive way. Some story about how he stood up bigots and racists, and proved you didn't have to be born white to grow up to be the President...
