Our colleague Amy Sullivan was at Reverend Wright’s appearance this morning at the Press Club and writes about it for Time.com. Her assessment:
Maybe Barack Obama skimped on his contribution when the offering plate came past at Trinity United Church of Christ. Or perhaps he nodded off during one of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s sermons. It’s hard to think of another reason why the Illinois Senator’s former pastor would put on the kind of performance this morning at the National Press Club that can only be described as a political disaster.
