OK, I'll engage in a smidgen of psychoanalysis. I'll do so through reader K., who supports Obama:

"It may be cynical, but I've started to think that Wright sees Obama as, in a way, a threat to his ministry. It would be difficult for him to preach that the government systematically destroys the lives of black people if a black man is sitting in the White House."



I know that many people inside Obama's campaign share this belief.
