    This is a weird idea indeed. I would think a politician would wait until he is elected, then break the news he is converting to Islam. It would be political suicide to announce something like that prior to an election. Regardless of his religious background, he would have to have a majority of the same views I have to get my vote.

    Yeah. I would be somewhat surprised, but yeah.

    Mis-voted. I voted that yes, I would vote for a Muslim-- but there's no way in Hell I would vote for a man who announced his religious conversion on the day before an election.

    With that, I agree. I disdain politicians who lie about who and what they are, for the purpose of getting elected. If they aren't willing to lay all their cards on the table, there is no way I would trust them with any matters connected with governing the country.

    If I thought he was the best person and he kept his religion out of my life then sure.

    I'd not be thrilled with a turban wearing president, but I think all perm-hats are weird. Otherwise, what's the objection?

    I don't care about the head covering- just the head under it.

    My only issue would be bringing it up the day before the election
    Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
    Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?
