125 years ago, it was illegal for a practicing Mormon to hold public office. Mitt Romney's grandfather was chased out of the country for his religion. Mitt may be our next president.
When Herman Cain was born, his parents took their lives in their hands every time they tried to vote. He wasn't allowed to set foot in the same school as white kids. Herman may be our next president.
When Barack Obama was born, his parents' marriage was illegal in 21 states. Today, he's the president.
Yeah, we've come a long way.
