Just filed a story about Obama's presser from South Dakota to answer questions about his decision to resign from TUCC. Will link when it's up. Here's some of Obama's key quotations I transcribed from the conference.

- “We don’t want to have to answer for everything that’s stated in that church."
-“I did not anticipate my fairly conventional Christian faith being subject to such challenge and such scrutiny."
- Obama's quitting the church, but not denouncing it. “It’s not a church worthy of denouncing,” he said.  Obama said his critics “they’ve seen caricatures of the church and accept those caricatures despite my insistence that’s not what the church is about and there’s not much I can do about it."
