Twists and turns in the story line
Byron York, at The Corner on National Review Online says that under pressure, John McCain has allowed that the "Rev. Wright Is An Issue, After All".
John McCain, stung by criticism on the right that he seems unwilling to go after Barack Obama on the Jeremiah Wright issue, is changing course. The McCain campaign, latching onto Obama's comment this morning on "Fox News Sunday" that Wright's comments are "a legitimate political issue," is sending around a transcript of McCain's comments at a press conference in Florida today.
One of the nice things about a democracy is that politicians, to a certain degree, listen to their constituents. With the MSM force field leaking in places, politicians are simply forced to respond to things they'd rather not and explore issues they wish they wouldn't. For example, Glenn Reynolds has a mini-roundup suggesting that Barack Obama is belatedly trying to distance himself from his radical base. And the pro-Hillary blogs have discovered the Obama-Ayers connection and are mining it for all it's worth.
