Hillary has apologized for the comments that Geraldine Ferraro made about Obama. John McCain apologized when Bill Cunningham used Obama middle name. All I am asking is does not Barack have to apolgize for comments that his pastor has made while he is working on Obama's campaign. Obama's pastor has maded racist comments multiple times from the pulpit. So I ask you why does Obama get away with it, but Clinton, or McCain cannot.

I am thinking the same thing. Even though he has publicly denounced his pastor's comments, could it be that a lack of appology about this could also indicate his quiet approval of them? Or, perhaps he is unwilling to take responsibility b/c he thinks deniability it the best way to distance himself from the controversy. If so, I think it is a campaign stragegy that definitely could hurt him.

Good question and one that deserves an answer. First you have to know that if it is not said against a black it is not racist, at least in most black people's eyes! Therefore what Senator Obama's pastor says against Hispanics, Jews, Whites or any other ethnic group doesn't count! That is why Barak Obama hasn't and will never apologize for anything his pastor says! Essentially he believes the same way!
