Jeremiah Wright responds to his critics in an interview on Bill Moyers Journal. This PBS Program demonstrated a level of journalism and background that has been absent in the rush to derail the candidacy of Barack Obama. the network news shows have not taken a single step to provide any balance to the blatant distortion of the work that this pastor has done over the 40 plus years of his ministry.
As he heads into Pennsylvania, there’s good news and bad news for Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama in the recent exit polls of white voters in Democratic primaries. The good news is that by a lopsided majority of six to one whites said that race was not a factor in considering whether to back Obama or not. That pretty much conforms to virtually every poll that’s been taken since Obama tossed his hat in the presidential ring a year ago. His red state Democratic primary and caucus wins and the handful of endorsements he’s gotten from the red state Democratic senators and governors seem to bolster the poll findings as well as his camp’s contention that the majority of whites have bought his race-neutral change and unity pitch.
"There is a clear Obama-mania underway and there are two aspects to this that we must address head-on."
