    Don't know what he thinks he's going to blame on the media. Wright was portrayed by Wright himself, in his own words. Kind of hard to screw THAT up.

    It'll be interesting to see what he says...though I'm not sure it will change my mind. It'll be hard to dig himself out of this hole.

    The press will give him a pass, just like they give every liberal a pass.

    The idea that he thinks we are DUMB enough to believe after 20 years of a close personal friendship and attending the church, reading his books, listening to his sermons when not IN church ( taped), that he can now claim he did not know what the man stood for?

    I can tell you right now he will try and change the argument to us whities can not understand the black mind. That when we hear a black leader demonize the country, it really isn't that but just a means to give power to blacks. He will be trying to sell the idea that the words we heard and saw, the actions taken, the speeches given, do not mean what they mean, that we can not, as white people, understand.

    This will sell well to Liberals, since they LOOK for reasons to be guilty. It may or may not sell well to undecides and it won't sell at all to any Conservative.

    He has a chance to pull it off since our schools teach our young to feel guilty if they are white.

    This is just a guess. Obama, "I want to first start by saying I denounce the inflamatory statements made by my former pastor, Racist, I mean Rev. Wright. But I want to explain why some older generation blacks feel that way, Liberation........Just a guess

    Oh, Oh I forgot one point he will probably make, "this is old politics, the politics of division. We should all get together and hold hands."

    The clouds will clear away as little rain-drops of peace sprinkle down upon us. "We need change!, I will change America! And I'll do that by...thank you very much and goodnight."

    He should probably throw a couple of bones to ol Bill too since the reverend accused him of "ridin dirty".
