Now that Barack Obama is truly denouncing Reverend Wright, and trying to distance himself further in no uncertain terms... is he prepared to give up all of the delegates his former association with Wright helped him to gather?
Like it or not, but Barack Obama would not be in the lead in the delegate count were it not for his strong support among African-American voters - support which can be traced in part to Obama's past association with Wright, and to his continued defense of Wright in his Philadelphia race speech 6 weeks ago. He may have thrown his white grandmother under the bus in that speech, but he stood up for his nutty uncle Jeremiah Wright, and used his association with Wright for another six weeks to gather votes and delegates.
It isn't surprising that Obama would now be using words like "outraged" over Wright's preachings, but Obama wasn't outraged when his association with Wright was winning delegates for him - now was he? Now that Wright has become a political liability, it's 'under the bus' with him.
So renounce those delegates as well, Barack, now that you agree that it's time to quit trying to steal the nomination by pandering to racists like Wright and his supporters.
If Democrats in all of those past primaries could re-vote today would Obama still receive as many delegates as he gathered in the last four months? Obviously not...
