The term used was "Mu'slam", not "Muslim". The former term refers to that group of people who have internalized the mythology of Muhammed, I'slam, Ummah, and the supremacy of that mythology. This group supports Mr Obama because his name is familiar, his political philosophy and family connections are assumed to be sympathic to the Mu'slam cause. The term "Muslim" is an ambigious term which implies a benign identification with an poorly defined and non existant mythology, a beneficient "Islam". I trust this clears up your confusion.
