Obama: Race 'Not the Overriding Issue Here'

President Obama commented on the claims of racism in the health care debate:

WASHINGTON -- President Obama said Friday that angry criticisms about his health care agenda are driven by an intense debate over the proper role of government -- and not by racism.

"Are there people out there who don't like me because of race? I'm sure there are," Obama told CNN. "That's not the overriding issue here."

Great. Can we stop talking about this now?
