Black lawmakers must rally voters
President Obama is coming out fighting against his Republican foes with strong words in a political speech to black lawmakers.
He’s telling members of the Congressional Black Caucus to go back home and rally people to support Democrats in the November election. He’s likening the task at hand to the grass-roots efforts that helped drive the civil rights movement.
Mr. Obama doesn’t use the word “Republican” in his remarks Saturday night. Instead he’s talking about “the other side” and “a crowd that wants to do what’s right politically, instead of what’s right - period.”
He also says the recession came down with “a particular vengeance” on black communities.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says preparing for her daughter’s wedding was the most wonderful, difficult and stressful task she’s taken on in the last few months.

But, she says, “Doing it long distance, jet-lagged, on planes, in the midst of diplomatic negotiations, made it a little more so.”
Chelsea Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and Mrs. Clinton, wed her longtime boyfriend earlier this summer before an exclusive high society gathering at an elegant estate in upstate New York.
