Running Out of Firsts: Condoleezza Rice appears to be next in line to become Secretary of State. She's the second African American to take the position. She's also the second woman. I think it's a good sign of progress that she isn't the first in either category, unless you start to combine and stretch (ie, first African American who is also a woman, first black person to replace a black cabinet officer, etc.).

Soon we'll stop making comments about how noteworthy it is that we don't have to make comments. And that will be a sign of real progress.
