You know Nobel-winner Toni Morrison, “who once dubbed Bill Clinton the ‘first black president,’” endorsed Barack Obama. I was recently reading an item by Greil Marcus (not online) in which he pointed out that Chris Rock said it first. And you know what? the Internet says Greil Marcus is correct: Chris Rock, Saturday Night Live, November 2, 1996; Toni Morrison, The New Yorker, October 1998.
