You heard it here first. I believe the quote that will cost Obama the election is: "Ayers is a guy who lives in my neighborhood... " -Democratic Primary Debate April 16, 2008 Bill Ayers is, of course, the co-founder of the militant radical left organization Weatherman. As the Presidential race heads into the home stretch the Obama-Ayers connection is percolating and will soon come to a rapid boil. The factual connections between Obama and Ayers require answers. These connections are: 1. The Annenberg Challenge 2. The Woods Fund of Chicago 3. Leadership Council of the Chicago Public Schools The Annenberg Challenge According to Wikipedia: The Annenberg Challenge was made up of three constituent parts: 1. The Chicago School Reform Collaborative, co-chaired by William C. Ayers. 2. A Board of Directors initially recruited by the Collaborative, which was chaired from 1995 to 2000 by Barack Obama, at the time a practicing attorney. 3. The Chicago Schools Research Consortium, a research arm of the Challenge.

See here As is often the case the possible "cover up" might be far worse for Obama if it turns out his association with Ayers was far more extensive than a "guy who lives in the neighborhood". The first step to putting this matter to rest is to get a simple question answered by Obama: "Who hired you for the Annenberg Challenge?"
