Barack Obama's Muslim childhood- Response to Perelini

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: chance

Hello Perelini: Quite honestly I would be much more secure in the fact that Mrs. Clinton was the nominee. I think many people would feel a lot better about Senator Obama if he would acknnowledge that his father and step father were muslims. There is much skepticism in America about Muslims, because you wonder which one is peaceful, and which one is radical. you can't blame Americans after 911, in which 3,000 people were killed by Muslims from Saudi Arabia. As time goes along, there may be more information coming out on B.O. Maybe this will be favorable.

Mrs. Clinton would have been the nominee, if John Edwards hadn't taken some of the democratic vote. She was disenfranchised by the Democratic party. Many voters are upset by the circumstances. She has the experience to be President, and many women are not going to vote for Barack.

Thanks, Debbie
