Barack Obama needs to make sure his staffers and volunteers understand that his â€œYes, We Canâ€ campaign should not be telling Muslim women wearing head scarves that they canâ€™t sit within camera shot of the candidate. Thatâ€™s what happened to two Muslim women Monday at Obamaâ€™s rally at Detroitâ€™s Joe Louis Arena. One wants a personal apology from Obama (not just the one she got from a staffer) and prime seats at another rally. Campaign spokesman Bill Burton said: â€œIt is offensive and counter to Obamaâ€™s commitment to bring Americans together and simply not the kind of campaign we run. We sincerely apologize for the behavior of these volunteers.â€
