POLITICO: Muslims barred from picture at Obama event. "The campaign has apologized to the women, both Obama supporters who said they felt betrayed by their treatment at the rally."
Gaffe-o-Matic! You know, an Obama presidency could be fun.
UPDATE: More: "That hurts, and the campaign has officially apologized. But should we really be dismayed to learn that the campaign cares about the look of the people behind the candidate? Don't you remember 'Get me more white people, we need more white people'? It should be done more tactfully, but wouldn't it be incompetent not to control the backdrop?" But it sounds like the old politics, not the new politics of hope and change.
