This Drudge linked item from 1997 reporting on a 1997 panel discussion on juvenile justice in which both Bill Ayers and Barack Obama participated makes it harder for Obama to dismiss Ayers as somebody who he didn’t know too well, especially given the Michelle Obama quote praising the panel and their “experience” with the juvenile justice system.

Politically, I wonder whether bringing up Obama’s relationship with Ayers will work for McCain given the severity of the financial crisis the blowback from “going negative.” But nonetheless, it seems worthwhile for Americans to consider that they are on the verge of electing a president who spent most of his life among the most radical fringe elements of the left. Obama likes to say that he didn’t know Ayers well, but seriously, how many terrorists does the average person know, even tangentially?
