Photobucket

If you haven't seen it yet, this is the photo MKH was talking about, earlier.

Drudge says the Clinton campaign circulated this photo.  Politico reports that Obama's campaign is calling it "shameful offensive fear-mongering."  So far, it doesn't seem like this is taking off, and I wonder whether or not it was wise for Obama's campaign to acknowledge the photo (thus keeping the story alive).  In truth, the photo was taken in 2006, and is not that unusual when visiting a foreign country.  Question:  Might some voters in, say, Ohio, buy the "Obama is a Muslim" argument?
