did you know?

* that when barak is elected president, there will not be any other black members in the senate.

* women have only had the right to vote since 1920 (88 years)

* blacks have official been able to vote since 1965 (43 years)

*John McCain's great grandfather actually owned a plantation full of slaves and kept them on as sharecroppers even after the civil war
