But last weekend, he held a conference call with a collection of black preachers that included his old pastor, Jeremiah Wright. He wanted to talk to them about getting out the vote.This is potentially damaging as he has kept his distance from Rev Wright because of his incidiary anti-American rants from the pulpit in Chicago...a church Mr. Obama attended for 20 years, but can't recall any such sermons. Here's the most famous rant following the attacks on Sept 11, 2001.
That's the church Obbama sat down in...yet claims to never having heard anything like that.
What Obama is trying to do is save his standing in the black community from when he supported gay marriage. That has badly erroded his standing there. Many black preachers are advising their congregations not to vote for either candidate for president.
