Delighting in a pithy comment

Well, if it's Thursday, that means another column by Peggy Noonan. This one is worth reading for its "lets-step-back-and-take-a-breath" tone, but her observation about Condaleeza Rice was striking to me
She is a good person; she has experience and accomplishments; she is stable, hardworking and sophisticated. She is also--this is breathtaking, still--a young black woman raised to the position first held by Thomas Jefferson.
Let that soak in for a second. It could be considered irony to some. I prefer to look at it as another example of the promises of this country being fulfilled.
