From the WCBS-TV website (with video):
With the race for the Democratic presidential nomination already in high gear, the Reverend Al Sharpton jumped into the fray today with some tough criticism for Senator Barack Obama. The outspoken reverend offered the harsh comments to Obama just as he looked to build support for his candidacy in the black community.This may become a recurrent theme in the campaign for Democratic candidates who supported Joe Lieberman or were late in becoming vocal in their opposition to the war.
"Why shouldn't the black community ask questions? Are we now being told, 'You all just shut up?'" Sharpton told CBS 2's Marcia Kramer Monday. "Senator Obama and I agree that the war is wrong, but then I want to know why he went to Connecticut and helped [Sen. Joseph] Lieberman, the biggest supporter of the war."
Having a Lieberman-campaign endorsement in your past may be the political equivalent of sipping tea with a bit of Polonium-210 in it; it will definitely make you ill, and might leave you with no future.
