18. I understand what you are saying ... however
... that is interjecting a broad-spectrum personal vignette analysis into a very narrow issue here. McClurkin isn't writing policy or advising Obama. McClurkin will be singing with others in ONE venue, and Obama isn't appearing at any of them. Entertainment, not advocacy.

I rather like Obama's approach of inclusiveness because in my opinion that is where change begins. There is nothing more effective than peer pressure, and Obama is approaching head-on the issue of bigotry in the black church-going community.

You obviously disagree, but the concerted drive to sink his candidacy doesn't play well overall particularly coming from people that never supported him to begin with.
