Important, Not A Distraction

Jeneane posts transcripts of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s “Audacity of Hope” sermon and of Barack Obama’s brilliant response to the firestorm that detractors of Wright have stirred up. Like Jeneane, I’m impressed that Andrew Sullivan can talk through some of the non-issues by which Obama’s opponents want to purchase an advantage at the cost of intelligence.
Maybe this controversy marks a watershed in the quality of public discourse in the U.S. Dare we hope so?
