OBAMA-KILPATRICK
(2008-06-02)
(wgvu) - AFTER HIS PREACHER PROBLEMS, BARACK OBAMA
DOESN'T NEED ANOTHER ASSOCIATION WITH A CHARISMATIC, RADIOACTIVE
PUBLIC FIGURE.
STILL, DETROIT MAYOR KWAME KILPATRICK IS A HARD MAN TO AVOID
COMPLETELY.
THAT PLACES THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN A BIT OF A
DILEMMA WHEN HE CAMPAIGNS IN MICHIGAN TODAY AND LATER IN THE RACE.
OBAMA MEETS VOTERS IN THE DETROIT SUBURB OF TROY, JUST WHEN HIS
PARTY NEEDS TO EASE WOUNDS FROM ITS INTERNAL FIGHT OVER THE
RENEGADE MICHIGAN PRIMARY.
THE PARTY'S RULES COMMITTEE DECIDED SATURDAY TO SEAT THE STATE'S
DELEGATES AT THE CONVENTION BUT HOLD EACH TO HALF A VOTE. HILLARY
CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN CRIED FOUL.
DETROIT HAS 900,000 PEOPLE, IS MORE THAN 80 PERCENT BLACK AND
NEARLY ALWAYS VOTES DEMOCRATIC.
