Obama reacts to Jeremiah Wright

Here's the video of Barack Obama reacting to Jeremiah Wright:

It's amazing to see the pain that he is trying hard to suppress, and the anger. One thing Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have in common is that neither of them grew up with their father. When Obama says that Wright was like a father to him, that means a great deal that most of us cannot understand. This is clearly very painful for him, and watching him, he is clearly very honestly expressing his real emotions. It's almost like Hillary crying in New Hampshire, except that it's much, much more important. Obama deserves points for being honest about this issue, which is unusual for a politician.
