Obama to give “major speech” on race, Wright.

March 17th, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

Good for him.

It’s an indication that he and his staff recognize that they do, in fact, have a lot of scrambling to do to put out the brush fire that Wright’s rhetoric has begun (though he continues to make an effort to defend Wright in a broad sense, which may be personally laudable but is certainly politically risky).

I imagine Clinton’s still got a small army of interns scrubbing through every documented visit Obama made to Wright’s church comparing the dates to notably… enthusiastic sermons, but he’ll be much better served by staying visibly ahead of this issue than by quietly trying to exorcise Wright’s presence from the campaign.
