If Barack Obama were running for student president it might be cool having the anarchist/marxist professor as a bud. I used to party with one of my professors who was an unabashed marxist when I was in undergrad and we would argue politics. I think it helped me form my belief system and debate skills. I have to say that my prof was never one to advocate violence.
But…we aren’t in a pub in a college town. Barack Obama isn’t a 20 y/o feeling out the ways of the world in college. Obama is running to be the head of the “system”, the “man” if you will. How his relationship with Ayers can be reconciled is beyond me.

I admit that I know many people as well, but I don’t think I know one that “struck a blow against the man”. I guess Barack Obama runs in better circles:
The Arizona Senator has come out strong against a North Carolina GOP ad using the Reverend Wright as a hammer against democratic opponents. I wonder if this is part of a strategy to provide distance between McCain and the inevitable attack ads, probably so. It may not be a bad tact to take given that Hillary will be spending some more time tearing down the new messiah. It will be interesting to see what McCain feels is fair game. He has already indicated a willingness to take Obama to task on his relationship with domestic terrorists.
It is clear that McCain feels like he has to walk a fine line and at this point he looks to be doing it with finesse.
