Farrakhan delivers address about Obama





Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said Sunday that he stayed quiet about his support for Barack Obama for the past few months.

Farrakhan said he feared his support would hurt Obama's campaign.

At the call to prayer Sunday at Mosque Maryam, Farrakhan praised President-elect Barack Obama.

"President-elect Obama's rise has not only given hope to us, but it has given hope to the world," Farrakhan said.

The fiery, and at times controversial, Farrakhan says he stayed out of politics recently as to not hurt Obama's chance to win the White House.
