Jeremiah Wright

Why are we back on Jeremiah Wright again? Are there no other issues that Pennsylvanians care about?

Out of the gate, Obama reiterates that he never heard the comments that were brought up that caused the recent furor, then he pivots to talking about the work the church has done over the past 30 years. (By the way, if you didn't see Obama's speech on race, you have to see it. It was tremendous, a watershed moment in American history that history will recount as such. Invest the time so that you can tell your grandkids about it!)

I'm sick of Jeremiah Wright. He's not an issue in this campaign. Charlie Gibson, so far, you're demonstrating why evening cable news is increasingly irrelevant.

Oh boy, now Gibson is getting Clinton into this mess again. "'He would not have been my pastor,'" he said she said. Do you think 8,000 people should have walked out, he asked? OOoooh! Good one! Clinton says that she was asked a personal question and she gave a personal answer, which, of course, is not an answer to the question Gibson asked.
