Eugene Robinson reflects my feelings:

I believe he might have pulled off something that seemed almost impossible: He not only ventured into the minefield of race and made it back alive, but he also marked a path for the rest of us to follow.

Michael Gerson somehow manages to say that this was "one of the finest political performances under pressure since John F. Kennedy at the Greater Houston Ministerial Association in 1960," and yet damns Obama all the same. According to Gerson, nothing Obama can say now can remove the taint of some of Wright's worst moments, and nothing else that Wright has said and done for the good  can be weighed in the balance. This from a man who flaunts his Christianity as a job credential.
