UPDATE: what others are saying … [h/t RCP]

The hate-filled sermons of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has led to Obama to this:

Race uproar offers test for Obama

Today he has to give the most important speech of his life. 

From the Politico:

He is now facing a full-blown and fast-moving political crisis in which his reputation as a leader with a singular ability to transcend racial divisions and unite Americans is in jeopardy.

The spinning has started, because Team BO knows the importance of this moment.

A successful address would go a long way toward answering Hillary Rodham Clinton’s complaint that Obama has never shown he can handle the rough-and-tumble nature of modern political combat.

A failed attempt might prove that it was Rev. Wright who helped tip the game.
