Turns out the need for “change” has won over “experience.” However you look at the 2008 Democratic Primary – both candidates have made United States history. As Hillary Clinton steps aside, it’s time to examine the lasting impact of her candidacy on women. And what does Barack Obama’s success say to young black males, to America, and the rest of the world? What doors have they opened and what doors still remain closed? What’s next for America…on The Sound of Ideas.
