Jeremiah Wright was White House guest
The recent coverage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright has often cast him as a marginal, almost fringe figure, but Trinity Church is a major Chicago institution, and Wright has long been a prominent pastor on the American scene.
And an anonymous blog set up to defend his church offers some compelling photographic evidence of this: A photograph of Wright and President Clinton, which it says was taken on September 11, 1998 -- the date of a White House gathering for religious leaders.
Hillary Clinton, according to her recently-released schedule for the day, was present at the gathering.
That's where Clinton reportedly told the assembled clerics, at the depth of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, that he had "repented."
As CNN reported at the time:
"I have been on quite a journey these last few weeks to get to the end of this, to the rock-bottom truth of where I am," Clinton said in his most emotional and dramatic statement since the affair with Lewinsky became public. "I don't think there is a fancy way to say that I have sinned."
Agreeing with his critics that he was not "contrite" enough during his initial Aug. 17 statement, Clinton said, "It is important to me that everybody who has been hurt know that the sorrow I feel is genuine. First and most important, my family, my friends, my staff, my cabinet, Monica Lewinsky and her family and the American people. I have asked all for their forgiveness."

Obama joined the church to get those political connections. It had nothing to do with Jesus.
Shoot...without Hillary pushing the Wright story, it will get buried and forgotten.
So Hillary and Bill knew this character, and probably had the goods on him months ago and broke the story at a time when it could hurt Obama the most. Nothing new here, let’s all just move along...
This is just fun to watch.
Next we’ll find out the pastor was boinking Monica, LOL
The Democrat Party: The Party of Incest.
It was also the date of the release of the Starr Report.
Bill had his good friend, Jerry Wright, over for a beer...
I would have been shocked if the “first black President” had never met a “revered” black leader like Barry’s Uncle Jeremiah.
America’s roosting chickens flocking together.
You gotta love this! No wonder the Clinton’s are remaining mum on this issue!
I don’t like popcorn, but I am really going to have to find a good snack for this sporting event.
Sept. 11th? Hmmmmm...
“The Democrat Party: The Party of Incest.”
The party that “plays” together “stays” together?
This event, like many in Clinton crowd, seems like a bad plot for a daily soap opera. It is almost too much to believe, but I guess I will have to.
I'm really enjoying this!!
