Is guilt by association legitimate?
Unless you are an Al-Qaida operative living in a cave in Pakistan, by now no doubt you've seen the footage of Jeremaih Wright, Barack Obama's pastor for 20 years, railing against America, white people, CIA, Hillary, absurd conspiracy theories, you name it. Obama has come out recently and condemned the rantings and distanced himself from Rev. Wright. The question is...is this enough? Should Obama be held responsible for what Wright said, given that he's publically disavowed association with it?
