Wright Removed From Obama Advisory Committee

More

As of today, according to an Obama campaign official, Rev. Jeremiah Wright is no longer serving on the campaign's African American Religious Leadership Committee. Earlier today, the campaign said they did not envision a scenario where Wright would leave that committee. Now he is gone.

In two days, a spasm of right-wing media attention has completed the circle on Rev. Wright, helping Obama with some housecleaning ahead of the general election, but potentially, serving to warn the campaign as well of what they'll face in the fall.
