He could have said, "I won't work with that awful piece of shit Bill Ayers. He should be locked up in prison for life."Here's a question. What choices could Obama have made in the past so that this connection to Bill Ayers could not be established? Should he have refused to serve on the board of an anti-poverty group, the Woods Fund of Chicago, between 1999 and 2002 because Ayers was also on the board? Should Obama have decided to take Ayers down independently and started a negative campaign against him in Chicago to ruin his career? What were Obama's choices? What did he not do that he should have to avert this blemish on his record?
