Hillary Clinton is not the only one Playing up Barack Obama’s Muslim connection. A conservative radio talk show host, Bill Cunningham, who introduced John McCain before a rally in Cincinnati on Tuesday used Senator Barack Obama’s middle name, Hussein, three times, while disparaging him, prompting Mr. McCain to apologize and repudiate the comments afterward by saying:

It’s my understanding that before I came in here a person who was on the program before I spoke made some disparaging remarks about my two colleagues in the Senate, Senator Obama and Senator Clinton,” he said. “I have repeatedly stated my respect for Senator Obama and Senator Clinton, that I will treat them with respect. I will call them ‘Senator.’ We will have a respectful debate, as I have said on hundreds of occasions. I regret any comments that may have been made about these two individuals who are honorable Americans.

It is nice that John McCain apologized but expect the Muslim connection to be a hot button issue if/when Barack Obama wins the nomination.
