Was Barack Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright, spewing anti-American sentiment from the pulpit? And how should Barack Obama handle the issue?

Joining in the conversation are Dr. Obery M. Hendricks — a professor at the New York Theological Seminary and author of The Politics of Jesus: Rediscovering the True Revolutionary Nature of Jesus — and Ronald Kessler, chief Washington correspondent of Newsmax.com and author of The Terrorist Watch: Inside the Desperate Race to Stop the Next Attack.
