You’ve heard what Jesse Jackson said about Barack Obama (video above). But whether he said "out" or "off," it’s clear that Obama is cutting out (or off) the nuts who would drag his campaign down.
If Jesse Jackson wants to be counted in that number, along with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that’s up to him.
Jesse pere should take the advice of Jesse fils on this point:
“Reverend Jackson is my dad, and I’ll always love him,” the congressman said Wednesday evening in a statement. He added, “I thoroughly reject and repudiate his ugly rhetoric. He should keep hope alive and any personal attacks and insults to himself.”
Such old party (and race) warriors as the Rev. Jackson and Bob Herbert of The New York Times need to realize that Barack Obama is not running to please them. He’s running to win, and to become the president of all Americans, not just of some political clique to which they believe he should be loyal and obedient.
