Barack Obama impressed me today after reading an article on Yahoo where he mentions his “personal walk with Jesus Christ.” Rumors have been circulating the Internet questioning his religion, although he adamantly states he is a Christian.
He has an amazing life story no-doubt; however, I question his political experience. One thing I find interesting is his name: Barack Hussein Obama—quite different from the traditional names of former presidents. However, does his name really matter? Can you really judge someone on this basis alone? I would hope not…
From Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey:
“It's probably not something that appeals to him, but I like the fact that his name is Barack Hussein Obama, and that his father was a Muslim and that his paternal grandmother is a Muslim. There's a billion people on the planet that are Muslims and I think that experience is a big deal." Kerrey added, "He's got a whale of a lot more intellectual talent than I've got as well.”
