This Is It!

Happy Inauguration Day!

Folks have been gathering in the mall since dawn.

Here is an interesting interview in 1963 with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who predicted a black president in less than 40 years, 25 years, he said. That would have been 1988. I think Jesse Jackson ran in 1988.

Anyway, it was 45 years from the time King had made that prediction. Hopefully, it won't take that many more years before we even notice or care regarding the race or ethnicity of our president.

For the record and to assist future historians as they read the blogs of history for prophetic nuggets, here you go:

Shuck and Jive predicts the first woman president within 12 years and the first openly gay president in 30.

Shuck and Jive does not predict he will ever be president.
