Better Pictures

Flip through this slideshow of Barack Obama's visit to Afghanistan, or watch this video. I don't think I've ever seen so many photographs of black servicemen and servicewomen -- clearly excited about Obama. I certainly didn't see as many at events for Bush, McCain, or almost anyone else.

For the record, the army is about 16% black and 11% Hispanic. When you look past the officer corps into younger servicemen and servicewomen, the numbers are sharper: between 19 and 20% black.
