Lincoln and Malia

In the Good Morning America interview with the Obamas, they tell the story of how their daughter Malia, having seen Lincoln's desk in the Lincoln bedroom at the White House, told her folks that she wants to sit at that desk to write history papers for school because that will inspire her.

Man. I wonder if Abraham Lincoln imagined that 150 years after his presidency, thanks in part to difficult choices he made, a little black girl, descended from slaves and daughter of the president, would sit at his desk to write her school papers.

I confess that makes me feel really good.
