Obama hopes to reboot US image among Muslims

I haven't had an Obama post in a while...well here's news worth mentioning.  Obama makes a bold move coming out of the gate....

"President-elect Barack Obama says he will try to "reboot America's image" among the world's Muslims and will follow tradition by using his entire name — Barack Hussein Obama — in his swearing-in ceremony."
He also plans on giving a speech in a Muslim capital.  I guess word got back to him that most Muslim countries hate America and don't quite know what to expect from America now that Bush is soon to be out of office. 
Obama said his message would be twofold: that his administration will be unyielding in stamping out terrorist extremism but also "unrelenting in our desire to create a relationship of mutual respect and partnership with countries.
And why would they ask him if he was going to exclude his middle name from the inaugeration ceremony?  Its been the tradition to use your full name, now all of a sudden he would be ashamed of his middle name?  This guy won the presidency with that middle name...why would he hide it now?
