Clinton-backing former Nebraska Senator sent letter to Obama Wednesday apologizing for any unintentional insult, lauding his qualifications to be president, after using his middle name “Hussein” and stressing his Muslim heritage over the weekend.

 

Letter calls Clinton’s rival “exceptionally qualified by experience and judgment to be president of the United States.”

 

Obama spokesman says he accepts apology, Kerrey says he sent the letter on his own without direction from Clinton camp.
