Please do not forget the four other shoes (at least) that will drop on Obama before the Democratic convention:
1. Rezko trial and press revelations of Obama's cooperation, collusion, and collaboration [CC & C](forget 'association')in unethical/criminal activities with Rezko and his pals.
2. CC & C with William Ayres and his terrorist cohort both past and current. Look out for the beneficiaries of those activities.
3. CC & C with what's-his-name who had close ties to Middle-East terror groups. Will this be another case of 'I was there participating but not caring?'
4. Re-emphasis about Obama's willingness to allow genocide to occur in Iraq when he was promoting,in 2007, immediate withdrawal of American troops from Iraq during the time BEFORE the Surge had reaped benefits for the innocent Iraqi men, women, and children -- many of whom had risked their lives to vote for a democratic Iraq! And didn't Obama vote against funding for our troops in Iraq, or was it that he simply did not vote for funding?
Now, Obama is taking a position for gradual withdrawal -- after he's seen the success of the Surge.
Obama smacks of someone who is soulless, unprincipled, unscrupulous, and unfit to lead America.
All of those issues will resonate with independents. But Democrats are not upset about Rezko, or Ayers, or abandoning Iraq. He won't lose much support in his own party from now until the convention unless something really bad comes out - and no one is expecting that at this point. Rezko has no dirt on Obama that would send him to jail. Democrats admire Ayers as much as Obama might admire him.

The only things I can add to Edward Cooper's and 11B40's excellent comments, are some questions.
Where is Obama's allegiance to the most essential principle serving as the soul and spine of America, "We hold these truths to be self-evident , that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."?Comment Posted By FamouslyUnknown On 4.05.2008 @ 22:45
How can he be believed to be patriotic when he has not supported our military while they have been under fire in defense of innocent Iraqis and Americans?
How can he be patriotic to find no moral/ethical problem in AGAIN betraying and abandoning the majority of Iraqi civilians and our democratically-oriented Iraqi military allies?
Obama's positions in these crucial areas spits in the face of our Declaration of Independence.
There is no 'status quo' for which you say Wright is against. Even Obama said as much in his speech at the National Constitution Center, Philadelphia, on March 18, 2008. In that speech, Obama, criticised Wright, and properly so, "It's that he [Wright] spoke as if our society was static; as if no progress has been made...But what we know,what we have seen,is that America can change. That is the true genius of this nation...."
What is meant by "anti-American" is Wright's vilification of the present US government for the sins of the past. Where is Wright's praise for US government efforts, supported by the general populace, for the past 50 years?Comment Posted By FamouslyUnknown On 27.04.2008 @ 11:11
If Wright is not a bigot, where is his castigation of the Muslim-dominated countries still practicing slavery and genocide against Black Chrisians, Black Animists, and Black Muslims today?
Have we heard a beep from from Wright or his buddy Farrakhan about these continuing atrocities by nonAmericans against Blacks and others. Obama, not too long ago, was promoting the idea of rapid withdrawal of US troops from Iraq even if it meant genocide would ensue in Iraq.
Has Wright, the master of malign harangues, or Obama, the Great Dissembler, spoken out against the enslavemrnt and slow-motion genocide of the Tibetans?
Has the vast majority of the American Black clergy and the Congressional Black Caucus spoken out loudly and truthfully about these 'foreign' atrocities?
What actions have they vigorously pursued for justice for those innocents?
Where are the Black American organizations teaching, mentoring, training, nurturing the young to strive to be the best they can be, as are the 75% of Black Americans who have WORKED their way out of poverty? Why are recent Carribean Black immigrants, African Black immigrants, Korean immigrants and Vietnamese immigrants making more progress than now-native Black Americans? Why aren't those attitudes and efforts for self-upliftment being emulated and adapted by Wright's and Obama's Black constituencies? Why are there so few voices speaking against the corrupt and corrupting Black American leadership and for their deliberately dumbed-down followership?
Why are Wright and the Obamas speaking to their constituencies against this self-effort, while they themselves reap the benefits of America's open society. What slimes!
By the way, Clinton received more than 20% more* votes than did Obama,in PA. That's MOST significant!
*((5475-4540)/4570)x 100 = 20.6%
