Clinton: Wright 'would not have been my pastor'
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, in a wide-ranging interview today with Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporters and editors, said she would have left her church if her pastor made the sort of inflammatory remarks Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor made.But Obama was coming back and once again was leading in North Carolina by 21 points. This can only be described as a Tonya Harding attack which can only hurt the Democratic Party in November and the country for years.
"He would not have been my pastor," Clinton said. "You don't choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend."
Obama's lead in national polls had slipped since clips of the retired Rev. Jeremiah Wright began being played on national news programs, but he has since rebounded, according to a Gallup poll. The uproar prompted Obama to give a major speech on race in America last week.
It's time for Clinton campaign workers and supporters to jump ship - the country and the world depends on it.
