Obama to Deliver “Major Address on Race and Religion”

The heat on Barack Obama is growing, to the point where he has announced that tomorrow he will deliver a “major address on race in religion” in Philadelphia tomorrow morning. Obama says, “I am going to be talking not just about Reverend Wright, but the larger issue of race in this campaign.”
I’m sure that Obama will indeed surround his mentions of Wright with as much general talk about “the larger issue of race” in the campaign as possible. His interview earlier today with Gwen Ifill of the Lehrer Newshour may provide a preview:

MS. IFILL: You have also cast this as a generational distinction of the sort of things that Reverend Wright said being the baggage of a fiercely intelligent African-American man of his generation and Geraldine Ferraro
