• Newsmax (3/24), Obama: Not a Crackpot Church.
Obama was interviewed by popular Philadelphia WPHT radio host Michael Smerconish last Friday. 
Obama said, "This is a pillar of the community, and if you go there on Easter, this Easter Sunday, and you sat down there in the pew, you would think this is just like any other church."
Wright has stepped down as an active pastor of the church, but Obama said he never heard any controversial comments when he was present at services.
"The ones that are most offensive are ones that I never knew about until they were reported on. . . . I don't want to suggest that somehow, the loops you have been seeing typified services all the time. But that is the danger of the YouTube era. It doesn't excuse what he said. But it does give it some perspective," he said.

And I said that it was time for standing up for what is right, for saying enough is enough, for urging that we turn a culture of degradation into a culture of empowerment, for saying that, while we, of course, must protect our right to freedom of expression, it should not be used as a license or an excuse to demean and humiliate our fellow citizens," she told reporters.

Recent polls show women are backing her 59 percent to Barack Obama's 35 percent.
The younger generation in particular seems unmoved by Clinton's potential to shatter the glass ceiling. For them, the feminist movement is just a chapter in a history book. That generation has seen female astronauts, female combat pilots, and a female speaker of the house. As a result, many experts say this generation does not see a viable female presidential candidate as a big deal.
