There is an interesting comment by Dave Davies of the Philidelphia Daily News senior writer on Fresh Air at about 11 min into the interview.
He was talking about questions he would liked to ask Obama but did not get a chance. One of those questions was why Obama did not make any campaign stops in the predominantly African American areas of Philly. Was it because of the post Wright era where being seen with boisterous African American supporters might be a liability?
Of course Obama had a deft answer. But Mr.Davies' tone suggests otherwise.
So much for Race not being an issue!
