Muslim Americans Feel Forgotten In This Campaign

Some Muslim voters feel snubbed by the Obama campaign. Others say they're ignored by the McCain side. And many worry that they've been painted as terrorists in this campaign. Rumors that Barack Obama is a muslim (he's not) persist, and former Secretary of State Colin Powell is one of the few to publicly ask the question: what would be wrong with it if he was? It's been a long, frustrating presidential campaign for Muslim Americans. And today, we want to hear from you. If you're Muslim in America, how has this campaign played out for you?
