    that if HRC had chosen to make Reverend Wright a campaign issue six months ago, or even three months ago, Obama would never have become the frontrunner in the first place.

    This stuff was bound to be aired in the media at some point--if not this spring, then after Labor Day. There is no way the GOP wouldn't take advantage of it.

    Frankly, I wish Obama had been more vetted before this campaign even began.

      several weeks of incessant pounding  when Barack was the frontrunner and of insatiable curiosity to them before  Wright was capable of being a "Trojan Horse" in their attacks on Obama. Making this an issue 3 months ago, or six months ago would have been laughable, absurd,and gone nowhere.

       Racist Sean Hannity takes credit for pounding on it a year ago and after, and it absolutely didn't do squat until all the trad media lemmings started looking for any gossip or trash of any kind to run with.

      This was assuming proportions of "OJ" with a vulture media fastening on a scrap of news worth 30 seconds and giving pundits 59 minutes of spin (besides commercials) to babble about it. The same 30 seconds for weeks.

      Like anyone cares about this "vetting"! It is fluff, smoke and mirrors.

      McCain: Unlike most Repub licans, he HAS dropped bombs on a people and country that did not attack America. It fits: Warmonger
