Do you think the relationship of Obama and hispastor Wright who sermonized that black americans should sing "God Dammn America" intead of "God Bless America" will hurt Obama campaign? Frankly speaking, I think it will not matter to Obama fans. To me, this is a reminder of a painful strugle of american racism that should overide with love and acceptance. I don't buy the argument that senator never heard of the pastor saying something like this. Now I doubt Obama integrity to be uniter. Seriously I have came to disbelieve him more and more

It doesn't change how I feel. I think Obama is great. Obama cannot control what other people do and you can't judge someone by someone elses actions, whether there friends or not.

What do you mean? Senator Obama wants to be a leader. I leader does control what people do. Senator Obama runs on judgement. He says we can trust his judgement; I don't think so. We can not trust his judgement, especially wanting to be the President of all America, not Afro-America. These statements make my concerned about my family's safety. How can I trust a man who really hates me, and doesn't even know me?

I can see you have problems with African Americans. Your comment was a very stupid one. No one can control any one else, not even God does that. Im just glad your not going to be president.

Personally, I am not for Obama, and never could be. I am a Christian, and I could never believe Obama does not believe any of this, and people still back and support him. Anymore, I am not sure there is a right choice in 2008 for President, but I am scared to think of what will happen if Obama wins. But I know I am one of the few majority.

Dear it is like this Clinton ex president of united states of america commited a mistake Americans pardoned him. It is the same now also but it says God Dammn America. It sint sound good to me. Another view what are afghans,iranians,iraq,african nations saying, ..... Do you know that america seperated a country into two recently due to which their embassy was attacked. It all depends upon what people perceive and think wait for somemore days verdict will be out. I really like hillary to win the election. Obama says he is a new generation guy and he has democrats votes god knows what might turn up. I wish they rule the country well so that i might live out of recession. Thank you

I had not heard about this, but, I would think if he announces such things he should be forced to withdraw from the race.... I do not believe that anyone who wishes america to be damned has best interest in heart - as such that person may use his position as a power to willfully destroy her. This jes ain't right!

I really don't think Obama fans will be effected by any negative things said or done during his campaign. I would rather see Hilary win their race. Who knows I am never realy satisfied with my electorial options anyway.

I'm sure it will hurt his campaign a bit. He's still a threat though. Many of his supporters are fanatics. Many of them feel the same way as his pastor. The ones who don't will just ignore the fact that he praises a racist pastor as his spiritual mentor. Some will insist his pastor isn't a racist. Some will never even find out since they are only voting for him based on his skin color. When you're a fanatic the easiest thing to do is cover your ears and bury your head in the sand as soon as something bad is said about your hero.
