Obama Calls Solmonese

He places a call to Hillary Clinton's de facto gay campaign chair and tries to head off the flap over an anti-gay Gospel singer on a campaign tour. The gesture is adding an openly gay singer to the tour as well. A workable compromise. I don't know how McClurkin got invited. A staffer should have done due diligence and avoided the pick. But I can't say I find this a big deal, and Clinton's gay surrogates, i.e. HRC, have made hay out of it. That's politics, of course, and Obama needs to get better at it.
