I always find it amusing when people are surprised at politicians. Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative. Everybody who runs for office blows things out of proportion. They all will take advantage over each others mistakes to get ahead. They will all try and find back doors, or find a juicy story to back their own message.
People an going to knock on Hilary for these two stories, and it is going to hurt her.
Obama's reverend is going to hang over his head like a bad raincloud for a very long time.
If I knocked on every politicians for blowing a story out of the water, then I would have zero people in our fine government to rely on even a tiny, tiny bit. If I hated a politicians every time they took a story to back their own message, then I would hate every single last one of them utterly and completely. Don't put yourself into denial by saying there is an honest person running for president.
I also find it terribly amusing that people are knocking on Obama for his reverend. I have racist family members. I have family members from all sides of the political spectrum. I have some friends and acquaintances who say some awkward things. Do I just dump them on the side of the road after all these years? I wouldn't. They are still my friends and family, even though I don't see eye to eye with them on a lot of things.
Want to bash Obama for being understanding about his Reverend? Then name every friend, family member, acquaintance that has said something awkward or just plain mean and maybe I'll bag on you for awhile. Beating on someone because someone they know is a little crazy is silly, in my opinion.
In my opinion, Hilary can't win the nomination. Obama will get the nomination, but doesn't have the vote to beat McCain because he doesn't have the older vote. No real biases against any of them, but that is just how I see it happening. I still think its pretty amazing a woman and an African-American have gotten this far. They may not win, but they got pretty close.

Gotta love the media and all the people who follow like, well..., followers.
