Obama can’t win presidential election, superdelegates, democratic convention, turmoil, Clinton gets delegates

I believe the damage is done to Barack Obama. It is possible he may become the Democratic candidate. However, I do not believe he can now win the presidential election. The images and words from the Jeremiah Wright sermons are indelibly etched in the American consciousness. He can give the most eloquent speeches and disagree with pastor Wright all he wants, but he cannot undue the 20 year association with Jeremiah Wright and the notion that he was mentored by him.
