Quixotic Dream?

An excellent commentary by Gerard Baker, United States Editor and an Assistant Editor of The Times:
The black senator from Illinois is on the verge of achieving unimaginable success for an African-American politician - the Democratic nomination for president, and quite possibly the presidency itself.

But suddenly his erstwhile buddies - in this case, the Jeremiah Wright, the former pastor of the Trinity United Church in Chicago - seem intent on dragging Sen Obama back into their recidivist clutches, condemning him to the plodding mediocrity of black political underachievement.
