The other day, I noted a quote in the New York Times from Jeremiah Wright that their association would hurt Obama. Wright said that "a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell."
Well. There's another. This time, a leader of Hamas appears to have offered his support. Carl Cameron has the details. Apparently Ahmed Yusuf gave a radio interview last Sunday. This is what he said:
We don’t mind–actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance.
