in response to reader comment: What does it matter if he is or if he isn't a muslim

I don't understand how this is even relevant. What we need right now is a president who will allow college graduates to find jobs, who will help us with our failing banks, and help bring down the price of oil. Someone who will help feed the homeless, and be a good representative of what the American people are all about. We are a nation of mixed languages, customs, races, and ethnicities. We love to go out on a friday night to the middle eastern restaurant down the street with the bellydancers, or to eat some panang curry at the thai restaurant downtown.

I think we need to wake up and look at more important, relevant things other than the long lost heritage of Obama; we should realize that he is a fluid, liberal, reformative leader who will help the ignorant among us accept the very ideals that America was founded on - freedom. Freedom to everyone regardless of who you are or what you do.

I love Obama. And he's sexy too :)
