CBS 2 Chicago: 2007 Video of Obama and Wright Signing Books Together
On Feb 8, 2007 Channel 2 News Chicago had a little puff piece on Senator Barack Obama discussing his soon to be launched presidential campaign. It happened to air just before Barack’s “60 Minutes” TV interview and it focused on Barack’s attendance at the Trinity United Church of Christ. The interesting thing about this video is that Barack is seen sitting side by side with Rev. Wright as they sign copies of Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hope.” This chumminess seems to make the lie to the claim that Barack was in any way upset at his “spiritual mentor,” Rev. Wright.
