Barack Obama made a call for nonviolence in the aftermath of the Sean Bell verdict - infuriating the Rev. Al Sharpton, who accused the presidential candidate of trying to "grandstand in front of white people," sources told The Post.

During what a source described as a "heated" phone call yesterday, Sharpton told Obama he was disappointed with the Illinois senator's words on Friday, when Obama said "resorting to violence to express displeasure" was "completely unacceptable and counterproductive."

Why did he talk to Rev. Al in the first place? There aren't many positive outcomes that can arise from such a conversation. Doesn't he have enough problems with his own reverend?

Obama turning down a meeting with Al Sharpton would be like Bush turning down a meeting with James Dobson. It simply isn't going to happen, even though both Dobson and Sharpton have pretty nefarious plans for this country.
