    I would definitely say that Obama "owns" the Muslim vote.

    It won't be long before they are a more significant voting community than the Jewish community. It could mean some changes in foreign policy.

    I'm not smart enough to parse foreign policy with you, but I sure miss the days of Americans just being "Americans". This hyphenated-American culture we're encouraging is splitting our country along ethnic and racial lines. The term "balkanization" comes to mind quite frequently.

    I miss those days too.
    Too bad that wedge politics has achieved such importance.
