Campaign Video of the Day -- January 10, 2007

One of the great things about modern technology is that we don't have to settle for second hand accounts. We can simply replay the video of a controversial event and make up our own minds. Yesterday Jesse Jackson Jr., Barack Obama's National Co-Chair, made a comment that has been widely criticized. I even read one person who was so incensed by the comment that she would never again consider voting for Obama. I thought we all would be well advised to watch what Jackson actually said before going to the mattresses. I am not endorsing anything the Congressman says, but I believe it is our duty to make up our own minds free of spin.

Today's video is called Obama Co-Chair Jesse Jackson, Jr. Questions Hillary's Tears. It was posted to Youtube by TPM.
