Hillary Jumps on Anti-Wright Bandwagon

Yep. She went there. You knew this was too irresistible for Hillary to not comment.

From Ben Smith at Politico:

"The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, in a wide-ranging interview today with Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporters and editors, said she would have left her church if her pastor made the sort of inflammatory remarks Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor made.

'He would not have been my pastor,' Clinton said. 'You don't choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend.'

The line about family directly hits Obama’s portrayal of Wright as someone like an uncle who says offensive and awful things, but you love anyway. 'I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother,' he said in his speech last Tuesday."

Who is she to comment on why someone stays in a relationship? Do you know how many women made the same comment after all of Bill's indiscretions came out? "I wouldn't stay married to someone who did that to me!" Of course, Hillary has never shied away from judging others when given the chance.

It's glaringly obvious that she is bringing this up now because the polls show Obama surging ahead of her again. When she was ahead in the polls before his race speech she kindly stayed away from commenting on his minister. Now that the speech has been well received, he has Richardson's endorsement, she is bringing up Wright. Pathetic.
