Yesterday Sen. Barack Obama called on CBS to fire Don Imus. CBS fired him today. Al Sharpton may have cancelled the protest he was planning. Note that Sen. Obama now leads in the MoveOn.org poll; Hillary is at the bottom with 10%. In the meantime, the local prosecutor apologizes in the Duke University lacrosse rape case. And now it appears that Oprah will have the Duke basketball team on her show.
