Obama's spiritual mentor is causing him to be verrryy careful these days. In a response from the campaign last night about Obama's spiritual mentor Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr's recent controversial behavior, the candidate appears to be walking on eggs that are lined up on a tightrope in the skies above Chicago's "Wrightville":
"As I've told Reverend Wright, personal attacks such as this have no place in this campaign or our politics, whether they're offered from a platform at a rally or the pulpit of a church," he said. "I don't think of the pastor of my church in political terms.
"Like a member of my own family, there are things he says at times with which I deeply disagree," he said. "But as he prepares to retire, that doesn't detract from my affection for Reverend Wright or appreciation for the good works he has done."
