Underestimate Barack Obama?

Don't do it, warns one Chicago journalist who has known Barack since he entered the US Senate race in 2003 (and he's right).

Looks like that's one mistake Hillary's team members won't make -- they're already raising some ugly questions about Obama's honesty (and religious heritage). No doubt it's because they can identify a potential threat when they see one.

Even Jesse Jackson may be climbing on the Obama bandwagon, albeit reluctantly -- given that it would mean he can no longer style himself as the nation's preeminent "black leader." And that burgeoning support, if nothing else, is a testament to Obama's liberalism . . . because Heaven knows that Jackson cares more about left-wing politics than racial solidarity, as Clarence Thomas and Condoleezza Rice could no doubt testify.

Ted Kennedy introduced Barack Obama as "Osama Obama". It was a foolish slip of the tongue by a glad handing politician but the mistake reveals a lot.
