This week we learned the limit of a dream in
American politics. At Barack Obama's darkest hour,
not one prominent ally came forward to support
him. No prominent black clergyman came forth to
make even the simple point that Jeremiah Wright's
notion of the "black church" is but one point on
a spectrum of faith. Rev. Wright, now written
off as a virtual nut case, got more support from black
clergymen than did Obama.
Barack Obama was bleeding by Monday and needed
cover. Where, when he could have used them,
were Obama's oh-so-famous endorsers: Jesse Jackson,
Ted Kennedy, Oprah, John Kerry, Chris Dodd,
Patrick Leahy, Tom Daschle, Amy Klobuchar, Claire
McCaskill, Jay Rockefeller, John Lewis, Toni Morrison,
Roger Wilkins, Eric Holder, Robert Reich, Ted
Sorenson, Alice Walker, David Wilhelm, Cornel West,
Clifford Alexander, Donald McHenry, Patricia
Wald, Newton Minow?
You know my feelings on Democrats and loyalty
- good luck, Barack!
I warned him that this was coming,
but I had no idea it would happen this
Democrats just refuse to fight.
Well, most of them, anyway.
