CHICAGO (AFP) — Barack Obama's first press conference as US president-elect came with an apology attached Friday, as he phoned former first lady Nancy Reagan seeking forgiveness over a "careless" crack about her conducting seances.
"President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan today to apologize for the careless and off-handed remark he made during today's press conference," Obama transition team spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said in a statement a few hours after the briefing.

I think all presidents take part in voodoo, as it is probably the religion of the white house. They are not christians, period.
He is just trying to deflect, others saying he may get involved in that stuff.

I think he just gave in to public opinion and made an apology for an offhand remark that was found distasteful.
To me it doesn't tell me anything about where he actually stands on such matters.
