    Washington (AP) - The president of the American Federation of Government Employees says the influential union is endorsing Democrat Barack Obama for president.

    AFGE President John Gage -- a superdelegate to the Democratic National Convention -- says he will also personally back Obama. The union endorsement gives the Illinois senator fresh momentum toward capturing the nomination.

    From the link: "Sarah Hussein Obama of Kenya, Barack Obama’s stepgrandmother, is a lifelong Muslim. 'I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith,' she says."

    Do you think it is fair to link Obama to what his step-grandmother says?

    I certainly don't think that is is becoming to engage in guilt by association toward the possible next president of the United States. :BangHead:

    You are the one that brought up the, "guilt by association" link to the prior post.
    I see nothing in the post by the poster that makes that statement. Just a link to a grandmother and a statement about her faith. Would you rather we not know this? By your post, apparently so.

    Associations are every bit part of looking into the character of a person as anything else. This is a standard used by many agencies when involved in a hiring process, ie the FBI, CIA, local police department etc. Dismissing his associations is nothing more than political deflection. A smoke sceen. Truth is his associations areas much a legitimate issue as anything else. Even Obama has admitted as much.
