I am a white American and I would fully support a black President if it was someone who had a clue. I.E., not Obama!

White Americans will vote in part against Obama because his middle name is Hussein. They will also vote in part against him because he is black.

Does Arab American include people of all religous beliefs?

i.e. is it only Muslims - or does it include Bahai, Christian Coptic, Jewish and Atheist/Agnostic Arab Americans?

Brian: Where are you finding these guests? What's up - slim pickings because of all the hangovers from partying with corporate America last night?

So Arab Americans will vote in part for Obama because his middle name is Hussein.

(I'm glad I'm not the one that said that.)
