In order to break through a glass ceiling, you have to get close enough to touch it first, and the best ladder is and always will be a good education. If Barack Obama does nothing else in his hopefully eight years as president but inspire a generation of young African American men to aspire to be Harvard-trained constitutional law professors instead of USC-trained professional athletes or street-smart record producers, he will have done more than enough.
