(via-YOU TUBE) Jeremiah Wright- Senator Obama's Minister
More on Rev. Wright from Politico.com
Wright's committee (via Ben Smith's Blog at Politico)
via POLITICOJeremiah Wright, in the news today because video of a sermon (parts of which had been reported, and disavowed, before) adds some heat to the discussion of his relationship with Obama, has generally been described as connected to Obama only informally — a religious figure with whom Obama has said he disagrees at times, a kind of cranky uncle.
But he also has a formal role on the campaign.
Wright is a member of Obama's African American Religious Leadership Committee — the sort of largely honorary, advisory body that in recent days has recently been used mostly to throw people off who say controversial things.
The Obama campaign couldn't immediately say whether he'd remain on the committee.
