Jackson Jr: Bible should be ammended to include Obama (no joke)

Representative Jesse Jackson Jr., after opining that the most important event in the history of the United States of America was Obama clinching the primaries last week, issued an interesting proposal:
"I cried all night. I'm going to be crying for the next four years," he said. "What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation's political history. ... The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance."
Since I don't want to be seen as racist, I'll plead the fifth on whether or not the Bible should be expanded for this noble purpose.
But wasn't the Independence of the United States, our victory in World wars 1 and 2, Our Cold War victory, the , the emancipation of slaves, etc., a tad more important than this?
