Illinois Senator Barack Obama was Tim Russert’s guest on Meet the Press yesterday. Among other things, Russert got Obama to swear on a stack of bibles he will not run for president or vice president in 2008. So that’s settled. For now.
But the real news came when Russert asked Obama about comments Harry Belafonte made about George Bush being a terrorist. It turns out the only other person Russert ever asked about Belafonte’s remarks was…Colin Powell. Gotta keep up with what the brothers are thinkin’, eh Timmy?
Update: James Wolcott has some additional questions Russert should have asked Obama.
