I listen to a lot of talk radio, on both sides of the aisle, though mostly of my own political persuasion. It seems to be the majority opinion that Obamas relationships with Wright, Ayers, et. al. should not be a consideration. Frankly, I don't buy it. I agree that his association with such characters doesn't imply that he shares their views, but it does raise questions why he has chosen to associate with people like this. If McCain had a 20 year history of a close relationship with someone like David Duke, it would be a major concern for voters--and rightfully so. So, when Obama associates with Wright and an unapologetic terrorist, it makes me uneasy.
