Political Night Train finds it unbelievable that Sen Obama and his wife Michelle were, for more than 20 years, unaware of Jeremiah Wright’s hateful racist sermons. There are persistent rumors of at least one video of Wright preaching hate and racism where the Obama’s are seen in attendance. How soon before such a video makes it to YouTube?
