Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

Investigators working on behalf of HRC have determined that Barack Obama may be more Muslim than he lets on:
An investigation of Mr. Obama by political opponents within the Democratic Party has discovered that Mr. Obama was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia. Sources close to the background check, which has not yet been released, said Mr. Obama, 45, spent at least four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia.
"He was a Muslim, but he concealed it," the source said. "His opponents within the Democrats hope this will become a major issue in the campaign."
When contacted by Insight, Mr. Obama’s press secretary said he would consult with “his boss” and call back. He did not.
I knew the Clinton camp would be formidable in exposing scandals large and small within the Democratic presidential field. I'm a bit surprised that her campaign sees Obama's religion and upbringing as an issue. If Clinton's campaign is not careful, this could easily backfire on her.
