Obama in Somali robes

I saw the picture of Obama yesterday that HRC's campaign supposedly leaked to the Drudge Report.  Other than being pretty humorous, I honestly don't know what the big deal is.  If someone is trying to play up the widely disproved rumor that he is Islamic, or whatever, it's pretty futile.  It's not like the old Dukakis-in-the-Tank picture where the photo was made intentionally to put out a certain image -- and it failed miserably!  This is just a picture that almost every Senator and President, and many Congressmen have -- they go overseas to a country that still holds on to some of its customs and garb, and they don the same clothing while they are there.  Politically, I think it just goes to show how desperate HRC's campaign really is.  And no one there, by the way, denied that they posted it.  I'm not a fan of Obama -- or HRC for that matter -- but he has done a great job of campaigning with  more class than is usually seen in a campaign.  There's nothing like making a candidate look like a victim to garner some sympathy votes.  Stupid move, Hillary.
