Obama's 'Christian' mailer

From NBC/NJ's Aswini Anburajan
Mike Huckabee isn't the only candidate trying to portay himself as a Christian leader.

Barack Obama in a mailer in South Carolina says that he will be guided by prayer when he's in office. The mailer shows Obama with his head bowed in prayer and has the words "Christian" in large letters. A second mailer shows Obama with his family and says he's a member of Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years.

The mailers are part of an attempt by the campaign to rebut rumors circulating on the Internet and through e-mail that he is a Muslim. Obama has been questioned about these rumors by voters in Iowa and in the past week he has directly addressed them on the stump, telling crowds that he is a Christian and don't believe rumors that "say I have a funny name."
