I think the historic event is the election of a black man to be president. By combining the "Obama logo" with clouds, he's saying MLK is looking on from the great beyond at the moment, seeing his dream fulfilled.
It took me a minute to get it, though. I think it's actually a pretty cool idea.
At first I thought to myself, "Uh oh, here comes politics. This is doomed." Then I realized that you can only vote up, not down. Those who supported Obama will vote for it, those who didn't can't "anti-vote" for it. So it's got real potential.
I'm sure the comments here will get ugly, though, since those who don't like him will have no other way to tally their dislike.
