Let me tell you how this will turn out.
Wright looks bad, but since these words did not come out of Obama's mouth most reasonable people will look past it to who Obama is as a candidate.

In a week, it will be a distant memory and when it is inevitably reintroduced by Mcain and co. it will already be old news.

The country will not respond to more fear mongering, which is all Mcain has to offer in the end.

Obama will be the next President of these United states and we will ALL be better off for it.

Peace.

3. Honestly, we don't know how this will turn out.
Let's see where things stand for Obama in a week. Never undersestimate white America's fear of the "angry black man". First they tried to frame Obama as a stealth Muslim, then as a stealth repug and now as a stealth "angry black man". America wants a "tame" black man.

13. Nope. I've never supported her.
I've long made it clear that I would never vote in the primary for anyone who voted for the IWR. Ever. And aside from that, I don't want to continue the bush/clinton cycle. That alone, unfair as it may seem, is a reason I couldn't support her. I have defended Clinton against what I've seen as bullshit attacks and sexism.

18. you got it, cali
it would seem blacks must behave like whites and women must behave like men - the emphasis on race and sex in this race shows America still has a long, long way to go

5. I would agree that...
it is better to get it out of the way now, rather than later. If he can survive it now...?

7. Iowa Caucus Today has already proved your point.
Obama took a 7pt lead, and Clinton lost a delegate :) 23-13

14. Good luck with a fractured Dem base;
and the Wright story will get PLENTY more airtime -- driving off those moderate repugs (if there really are any for Obama) and indies.

An utter disaster in the making.

15. "In a week, it will be a distant memory"
That's exactly what Kerry supporters said about the swiftboaters.

How'd that work out, again?

17. This is where you are mistaken
The criticism of Kerry as misguided and false as it was questioned HIS actions and HIS words.

Obama did not say what his preacher said.

It is guilt by association and it will not stick because it has no real nerit.
