1. Should a Mosque be built at ground zero. Seeing as how it is not being built at ground zero, sure.
2. Is president Obama a Muslim? We both pretty much shrugged. My thought is that Clinton was the first black president, so why couldn't Obama be the first Muslim president, in the same vein?
3. Are the above two stories distractions? Yup, media focus on those to the exclusion of other topics.
