Update: video Barack Obama Reading, PA

Jim Pinkerton on Fox 'n Friends this morning (Sunday) stated during the interview he doesn't believe if Barack Obama is the Democrat Party nominee Obama will win against John McCain.

We thought immediately at the time, John who?

Ashley Earhardt, one of the three anchors on Sundays, said, what, a Democrat can win this year against McCain. Most people simply perceive McCain is too old to serve as President. Plus, she said, he's at odds with many members of his own party.

Pinkerton pressed on about Obama and how the Reverand Wright story would be hammered by the Republicans come the Fall campaign should Obama be the Democratic nominee.

Everybody everywhere will know who Reverand Wright is then.

Hmm. As opposed to everybody everywhere who has any interest in politics at all now and then does not know who Rev. Wright is now?

Fox's Hannity (Sean) has had no less than 4 of his own Hannity's America programs focus on Rev. Wright and who knew Weather Underground famed bill Ayers.

No less than Sean Hannity reportedly gave ABC's George Stephenopolous the suggestion to ask Barack Obama about Ayers during the upcoming ABC Democratic Debate.

And George asked a related question about Ayers.

Despite all of the focus on these "negatives" who has had a recent rally in the key Primary-state of Pennsylvania that drew 33,000 more attendees than former President Bill Clinton in a southwestern county?

Barack Obama.

His poll numbers continue to rise. One Gallop Poll that's being cited for national support of Hillary Clinton over Obama for the first time in months shows a mere 1 point difference. Now who doesn't realize that the polling statistics are merely reflections of a moment in time on a specific day among a certain grouping of those polled?

The news media would rather cite Pennsylvania Polls where Hillary Clinton maintains her same two-week old 5-6 point lead over Obama than pause to wonder how Obama could not only have managed to keep Clinton down to those low numbers despite everything, and still have managed to attract 35,000 individuals from Pennsylvania to an event after his comments about "bitter small-town Pennsylvanians!"

The media doesn't even blink when reporting Clinton leads by the same percenatage in mid April as she led in the beginning of the month.

The media won't let the real numbers speak for themselves.

Pinkerton had the numbers. Yet not one word that 35,000 came out for a rally for Presidential candidate, Barack Obama, despite the aftermath of media focus for two weeks and running affiliation of Obama with Rev. Wright, his controversial pastor, despite criticism over Obama's choosing for a time to not wear an American flag pin, and despite the daily repeating of Obama's words spoken at a fundraiser in California.

Those words have been the topic of conversation for at least 10 days and Hillary Clinton has made them central to her ads and most of her speaking gigs in PA.

Yet, even making an observation about "bitter, small town Pennsylvania," that may have set some on the edge, the fact is after all of that, Barack Obama drew a staggering 35,000 Pennsylvanians to a rally in Pennsylvania

If anything were going to damage Obama by now, it would have.

The ABC debate (Wednesday) wherein those issues were central for some 50 minutes in fact may have put Barack Obama on the hottest burner of the campaign, and though he came out looking a bit heated, he showed his coolest mannerism and character, yet.

The gesture he made may have spoken to people in a way few other ways could.

During one appearance afterward, Obama told his supporters: You know what I do with that... brush it off...

Obama then made a gesture that everybody understands at its heart. He swept at both his shoulders, brushing off the jibs and jabs.

But Obama did more than that with the gesture.

He first swept away at his "right" shoulder, then he swept away at his "left" shoulder.

In other words, Barack Obama let everybody who would look close enough know - no matter what his own left of the center Democratic Party throws at him, he will face it but not let it diminish him or his outlook and approach.

The same with the right of center Republican Party.

That's why Obama's numbers continue to rise despite everything that could potentially be damaging to those numbers come up again and again.

Another reason Obama's numbers continue to rise? He revealed before the ABC debate he's as human as the rest of us, and in fact he admitted his own fallibily to as many of us "mangle" his words.

He doesn't always say everything exactly the way it is best understood.

While many have put Obama on a high-expectation pedestal, especially after his brilliant speech on "race" - basically, didn't he have only one place to go from there? Down.

Yet, after all of the criticism in Pennsylvania Barack Obama remains a viable choice for Democratic voters.

Should Barack Obama become the Democratic Party nominee, people will still understand it is Barack Obama against Washington DC - insiders and establishment politicians - not Barack Obama against us, we the people.

Former President Bill Clinton was met by a cheering crowd of about 2,000 in Fayette County Friday as he campaigned for his wife, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, in her bid for the presidency.
Clinton, who met with supporters at Divito Park in Dunbar Township, is the first former president to visit the county in recent memory.

He told the crowd that included hundreds of high school students -- from Connellsville Area, Uniontown Area, Albert Gallatin, Brownsville Area and Laurel Highlands -- that his wife is "the best candidate for president.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Barack Obama was greeted by the largest crowd of his campaign Friday night in Philadelphia. Some 35,000 people jammed into Independence Park to see the Democratic presidential candidate, four days before this state's crucial April 22 primary.

Frank Friel, director of security at the Independence Visitor Center, made the official estimate.

The crowd exceed the 30,000 who greeted Obama and Oprah Winfrey in December in Columbia, S.C.

Pennsylvania (AP) — Shivering in blankets of Penn State's colors, some 20,000 people filled a campus lawn Sunday to hear Barack Obama say he can win the Democratic nomination even if rival Hillary Rodham Clinton stays in the race.

Gallup Poll Daily tracking shows that Hillary Clinton now receives 46% of the support of Democrats nationally, compared to 45% for Barack Obama, marking the first time Obama has not led in Gallup's daily tracking since March 18-20.
