So Barack Obama has finally separated himself from his pastor, Jeremiah Wright. This affair is starting to rival the Richard Burton - Elizabeth Taylor marriage on the love/hate meter. What’s more, it reveals that Obama has an inability to make up his mind. He waited until Wright made his less explosive comments at The National Press Club to condemn him almost utterly or rather, kinda-sorta. I sense fear in the Obama campaign, fear of Reverend Wright and his next media tour.

So what took Obama so long to tell Reverend Wright to get on down the road?

The polls, apparently.
