Yeah, Obama is the first black president blah blah blah historical yada yada yada.

But did you know that on November 4, 2008, another milestone of sorts was reached?

RasmusAmerica now has its first transgender mayor:

In tiny Silverton, Oregon, residents have elected the man who's believed to be the first ever openly transgender mayor in the United States.

Stu Rasmussen served two terms as the Mayor of Silverton in the 1990s. But he hadn't admitted to being transgender. He's not the same man now that he was then. Today he wears a skirt and high heels. He has breast implants, and long red hair. He looks like a woman – but he's not.

"I identify mostly as a heterosexual male," Rasmussen said. "But I just like to look like a female."

Rasmussen_img_0 Rasmussen is a man. He even has a girlfriend. He says he's always been transgender, but he only "came out" a few years ago.

That's cool, I suppose.  But I doubt some presidential candidate is going to come along and pick this small-town mayor for Vice President.
