    WASHINGTON - Religion is supposed to be Barack Obama's strength. Unlike many Democratic candidates before him, Obama speaks with ease about his faith. He attends Sunday worship and knows his Bible. His supporters believe he can pry some committed churchgoers away from the GOP.
    But the furor over comments by his Chicago pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, broadcast again and again on TV and viewed by millions on YouTube, is tempering those hopes.

    In the end it satifies the need for 'something' to fill the press without really discussing issues of greater relevance. Balance the attention: Balance the distraction: Build straw men of little consequence: Avoid real issues and specific solutions. Most of it is a media game!

    I think we know this part isn't true. So far his Bible statements have been wrong but I have to agree with Ken on this one, we're not voting him for nations pastor. I further think Obama stood strong in a no win situation. Had he denouced his pastor he would be admitting to a bad Church choice for the last 20 years. That the snippets were a true reflection of Sunday service at his Church. It would also say he will do anything to be president. By sticking by his pastor he showed strength to be who he is and said no matter what you decide from a few snippets, my pastor and Church are not all bad or all racist.

    You can say what you want but I think he made the best of a no winner...

    I'm not an Obama supporter but I believe in doing my best to view reality without bias. You can twist things anyway you want but truth is truth.

    I will probably vote Democratic this election because I can't contribute to making McCain our leader.

    If Obama is the nominee, expect GOP campaign commercials that show the rantings of Wright, accompanied by a voice-over noting that Wright is Obama's longtime mentor, and followed by Obama saying he will not disavow Wright, topped off with pictures of the two men embracing. At this point, it's done!

    If Obama apologists stay in denial mode, your fun may be spoiled. ;)

    That's alright, I feel that McCain is the best the republicans have to offer. Although I will vote for the democratic candidate, if McCain wins I can deal with it. After all, he's better than Bush!
