Obama Gets Put Out To Pastor

You might feel sorry for Barack Obama, being undone by his own pastor, like a Shakespearean tragedy (et tu, Jeremiah?).  Being helpless at the foot of a figure of unnatural pomposity, the likes of which we haven’t seen in quite some time.  By a party primary nomination process that seems, at best, counter-productive and at worst, a suicide pact.  Indeed, Howard Dean’s party will have the nominee decided well beyond the conclusion of the Stanley Cup hockey championship — a huge blemish on his record.
So, feel sorry for Obama?   Not after reading these questions posed by today’s Washington Post editorial:

Given the long and close relationship between Mr. Obama and the Rev. Wright, voters will ask: How could Mr. Obama have been surprised by the Rev. Wright’s views? How could he not have seen this coming?

Obama’s right: It’s all about judgment.
