Thomas, did you happen to find it? Post a link if you can find it again.
I went looking yesterday but maybe it wasn't up yet.

I'm surprised no one's called you on this already, Mike. He's only an
Illinois state senator at present. He *will* be the only black man in
the senate, if he wins his upcoming election. (Which... *ahem* ...might
be a reason the Dems made him a keynote speaker.)
Actually, he'll be the third black senator since Reconstruction. It
amazes me -- tho it doesn't surprise me -- that we've only had two in
that amount of time.
