August 29, 2008 - SAN FRANCISCO, CA - When Barack Obama left Invesco Stadium in Denver Thursday night, he got into a limousine and was driven away - making him the First Black Presidential Candidate to Leave a National Convention, as well as the First Black Presidential Candidate to Ride in a Limousine.
"This is truly an historic moment," said one of the 84,000 Obama supporters who witnessed both ground-breaking achievements. "He was escorted to the limousine. Then, he got in, and it drove away. It was amazing... except when the driver didn't signal before he turned the corner. That was not so amazing."
The future should be full of historic firsts - aides close to Obama mentioned that he may be grabbing a bite to eat later, making him the First Black Presidential Candidate to Grab a Bite to Eat.
"I'm pretty sure he was checking out that chili place around the corner earlier," said one of Obama's aides, but another believes Obama is just going back to his room to "catch some shuteye" as he is very tired from his hectic schedule over the last few days. While this threatens to postpone one historic first, it opens up the possibility that Barack Obama will be the First Black Presidential Candidate to Sleep.
While most of those closest to Obama speculate that the First Meal Eaten by a Black Presidential Candidate will likely not happen until tomorrow morning, and surely no later than early afternoon, most can at least agree that this first is inevitable.
"After all," says one Obama supporter, "everyone's got to eat."
