A Glimpse Into the Underside of a Political Campaign

Amazing, I know this goes on, but to be so out in the open?

Obama and Clinton were competing for the support of an "influential African-American consultant -- a state senator who is pastor of a 10,000-member megachurch," named Darrell Jackson. The Obama campaign thought they had secured Jackson's support, but they apparently were outbid by Clinton. Sweet reports:

Clinton's campaign made a deal, worth at least $10,000 a month, with state Sen. Darrell Jackson's firm, Sunrise Enterprises. The contract surfaced when Jackson earlier this week endorsed Clinton for president without mentioning his company would be working for her. Read the rest.

This may also explain the bizarre fued that Obama and Hillary seem to be having.
