IN FAIRNESS TO MR. OBAMA...:

Two Questions for Senator Obama (Lanny Davis, 3/20/08, Real Clear Politics)

These two questions are:

1. If a white minister preached sermons to his congregation and had used the "N" word and used rhetoric and words similar to members of the KKK, would you support a Democratic presidential candidate who decided to continue to be a member of that congregation?

2. Would you support that candidate if, after knowing of or hearing those sermons, he or she still appointed that minister to serve on his or her "Religious Advisory Committee" of his or her presidential campaign?


...while Lanny Davis generally seems like a rather decent person, he did remain personally and politically loyal to President Clinton even as he was exposed as a sexual predator who had tried subverting justice in the Paula Jones case. The Reverend Wright's speech appears to often be vile, but there's no evidence that he assaulted anyone nor broke the law.

Lanny Davis better watch out - Obama will be Ferraroing him tomorrow. Or is that 'Wrighting' him - I can't keep them straight.
