Hillary and Muslims

    With the Clinton campaign hinting at making a smear issue about Obama and Muslims, without really doing it out in the open, how come the national media doesn't look at how Hillary connected with American Muslims while gaining all that "experience" as First Lady. (And she slept in a Holiday Inn Express last night, too, voters!)

    From an American Muslim Council press release reported January 10, 2000:

    "President Clinton today commemorated the end of Ramadan with American Muslims at the White House. This year's Eid-al-Fitr
    celebration at the White House marks the first time that an American
    president in office has met with leaders of the American Muslim
    community. The White House has held an annual Eid celebration, hosted by First Lady Hillary Clinton, since 1996, when the first such event was co-hosted by the American Muslim Council. Eid is the Islamic holiday marking the conclusion of Ramadan, the month of fasting and spiritual renewal. In his remarks to American Muslims, President Clinton spoke of Ramadan as a "gift of Islam" in reminding all people "of our shared obligation to aid those who live with poverty and suffering." He noted that Islam is "now practiced by one of every four people on earth" but that there are "still too many Americans who know too little about Islam."

    I would like to state for the record that President Clinton was correct if he actually said that "still too many Americans know too little about Islam."

    Hillary's not a Muslim? I thought, according to this movie, her name was Hillary Rodham Hussein...
