Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama has launched a new website today, devoted to dousing “smears” against the first African-American with a serious shot at the presidency, according to WASHINGTON (AFP) –
“What you won’t hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, and patriotism as a bludgeon — that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize. Because we may call ourselves Democrats and Republicans, but we are Americans first. We are always Americans first.
-Barack Obama, June 3, 2008”
