Other people's politics

I listen to the radio on my forty-minute commute between home and work. Mainly Radio 4, Radio Berkshire and Radio 5. I have to say that I have been dreading today because of that inauguration. Will I be able to escape the coverage? I certainly wasn't able to escape the never-eding primaries. I may even revert to listening to CDs.
Incidentally, isn't it racist to say that Mr. Obama will be the first black president? By pointing out the persons colour isn't that being discriminatory? I don't recall lots of hype about Mr. Clinton being the first president from Arkansas.
