Ask about Barack Obama's natural constituencies and you might hear that he's the first black with a viable shot at the White House, or about his Kenyan father and his childhood in Indonesia, or the youthfulness of his followers, or the millions of Oprah junkies swooning over his candidacy. What you might not hear is that the Illinois senator has made Jewish leaders an early stop at every stage in his political career.
