    Barack has done nothing wrong, but is constantly explaining his actions or non actions regarding his pastor. Does anyone realize this is same minister who went to Washington as part of the prayer breakfast for Clinton when he was involved in Lewinski controversy. The Clinton campaign has not mentioned this. I also see in headlines that Oprah has attened his church.
