Yesterday, Hooman Majd made the case that an Obama presidency would immeasurably heal America's reputation in the Muslim world.
Rather, a President Obama will likely engage the world in the way it should be engaged -- with respect, understanding and a clear sense of purpose. He will be, at the very least, a symbol of what can restore greatness to America -- a greatness that millions of people outside America want to believe in, but have up until now had difficulty reconciling with the facts.Litttle did he know that Obama's global support is booming in this hemisphere, too.
