SENATOR OBAMA HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO OBFUSCATE ON THE MATTER...:

Obama rejects terror link 'smear' (BBC, 10/05/08)

US Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has hit back at claims by his Republican rival that he associated with "terrorists".

Mrs Palin said Senator Obama had been "palling around" with an ex-member of 1960s US-based militant group.

Mr Obama said the Republicans were out of touch and trying to distract voters from the real issues.


...but Rick Perlstein is also a Chicagoan and makes no bones about how mainstream these former terrorists are in local Democratic politics, even offering to introduce us if any of his conservative friends made it to the Windy City. So it's awfully hard to figure out how it could be a smear to mention the association of the Unicorn Rider with the Weatherman.
