Nothing but the Herald this morning, folks. Everyone else is still sleeping.
A- Herald: The Marlins get out the broom.
B- Herald: The true meaning of Memorial Day.
C- Herald: Ana Menendez on Obama's Miami visit.
We may never be able to transcend the politics of identity that marked the 20th Century -- a century of mass migration and upheaval whose wounds we learned to salve with liberal doses of sentimentality.
But in many ways Obama is the first politician of the new century, one who seems to be striving for a way past the dichotomies and clichés that dominated the discourse for so long.
Friday, black, white, immigrant and native-born gathered in Miami to hear an African American make his case for the presidency before a Cuban American group. Thirty years ago, such an event would have been unimaginable.
Last week, it proved historic for reasons no one could have predicted. Identity took a backseat to ideas. And pandering finally gave way to a conversation among equals.
