Good points but Obama is new to foreign policy and I don't think his team has the realization just what these people (both the good and the bad) are about.
Far to many Americans elite are out of touch with us as well as others...

Knowing how western women have had to work through and around their husbands to get something accomplished, just think what Indian Muslim women have had to do.
Talk about an expert in diplomacy! If those are her qualifications, then, bring it on!

I'm not Mikeyy, but I'll go where angels fear to tread
The point is there have been, and are presently, in the history of diplomacy and war, all sorts of "groups" and peoples that nations and/or kingdoms have had to deal with. The Catholic Church of medieval times was a giant force. Muslims surely are within the scope of entities countries must take as a body, if they would attempt to address a problem with one member.
I would say the Catholic Church still has a certain amount of political pull. Take the issues of abortion and the death penalty for example.

.......Another reason why this American "i'll-go-my-own-way" will never make it to first base with the muslim community or any other foreign power for that matter. This ass is going to remind the world, despite the obvious roadblock (that women are not recognized as equals) that he's the liberated first black and muslim president of this country. This guy stays mired in self-adulation!

The Vatican is a recognized country, not a religion.

Yes, And I was born a black child in Mississippi.. You can get technical but it doesn't change how 99.9999% would think when considering where you find the head of that religion.
