Is the Obama Victory a Historical Watershed?

Hosted by

An African American Democrat wins a contested primary in a state composed mostly of white voters, getting the support of more women than the first woman with a real chance for the White House. An evangelical minister beats out a wealthy businessman on the Republican side. How does all that look from a historical point of view? Historian Robert Dallek is a long-time presidential biographer.
