Speaking of Black Presidents

HOPE, Ark. — A bill that would make Bill Clinton's first home in Hope a National Historic site has passed the House and needs only the president's signature to become law.

The House of Representatives voted 285-140 on the measure that included the wording that would bring the Clinton home on Hervey Street under the National Park Service as one of 33 presidential historic sites.

The Senate earlier passed the bill, which now heads to President Barack Obama. U.S. Representative Mike Ross (D-Ark.), who has worked for years to help Clinton's first home attain federal status, said Obama is expected to sign the bill.

Let me guess...this will stimulate the economy, too.
