The 57 state solution

Remember on the presidential campaign when candidate Obama said that he had traveled through all 57 states. Many of us wondered how it was possible for a presidential candidate to make such a mistake. Any grade-schooler knows better.

According to CNSNews, President Obama is interested in a "57 State" solution to the mid-east crisis. No, not 57 United States. The 57 states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference.

I find it intriguing that when candidate Obama tried to recall the number of states in the United States, the first number that came to his mind was the number of states in the Islamic conference.

Of course this doesn't mean anything, but it does explain what was otherwise a very puzzling gaff.
