Dan and I also had a brief exchange today regarding yesterday's commentaries on Obama's response to Chicago pastor Jeremiah Wright's new embarrassing blustering.
Dan had this to say: "Barack has now severed ties with Wright, more in sorrow than anger. I hope Hoosiers get the message in time."
(Remarks at Elkhart County's Obama Campaign Headquarters Ribbon Cutting Ceremony: April 4, 2008 -- Dan Shenk)
Barack Obama brings people together. He has been doing it throughout his adult life -- bringing Republican conservatives onto the board of the Harvard Law Review, of which he was president. Bringing black and brown and white together on the streets of South Chicago as a community organizer. Working across the aisle in the Illinois Legislature and the U.S. Senate to pass legislation.
