With it looking increasingly possible that Barack Obama will win the Democratic nomination and be sworn in as President this November, it’s worth noting that someone here at InTheFray saw this coming long before Obama embarked on this campaign. On the eve of the 2004 election, ITF Advisory Board member Bob Keeler penned a column about the possibility of Barack Obama being sworn in as the first African-American President. Read Bob’s column, "A 20/20 vision," here.

Also, in other news, we are excited to announce two new additions to the ITF family: On February 7, ITF News Editor Nicole Leistikow gave birth to Morris Abraham Leistikow Auerbach. Four days later, on February 11, ITF Founding Editor and Executive Director Victor Tan Chen and his wife (and former ITF Webmaster), Emi Endo, had a baby boy, Elijah Kai Chen. Congratulations to Nicole and Josh, Emi and Vic!
