Abcnews.com has this story as their top news item right now on the web. So far, I haven't seen it on any other site yet, but if it does break (and you can be sure it will if Obama is our nominee) I wonder how big the implications will be in the general election.
First, I have given up on Hillary, as it is becoming more apparent that she is unlikely to win the nomination without ruining any chance she would have of winning in the general election, so I write this with genuine concern for our ability to win the White House this year (assuming that Obama is the nominee).
The story is pretty damning when looked at through the eyes of the general populace. Essentially, ABC obtained (they were for sale, presumably by the church) Rev. Wright's past sermons and has reported on several of the more vitriolic ones. The context of these sermons appear to be a real liability for the Obama campaign, as he has not only embraced Rev. Wright, but more importantly (and the point will be made by the GOP) continued to attend the church where these types of messages were being dispersed (thus giving his implicit agreement with the general concepts). I am starting to fear that we (with the help of the media) may have forced out John Edwards a tad too early during the primary and we may end up in a very tough fight for a White House that should be easy pickings.
