The Wright Stuff

I'm not going to defend Jeremiah Wright, Obama's former pastor, for the things he says here. He could do Obama a real favor by shutting up for a while. But why is Obama responsible for this? Why is this seen as something Obama needs to address?

The rabbi who bar mitzvahed me had an affair with a woman who was promptly murdered by her husband. If I ever run for office, is this something I'll have to address?
