President-elect Barack Obama says he is hoping to "reboot America's image" around the world, especially among Muslims.

The president-elect is also renewing a campaign pledge to deliver a speech in a Muslim capital, though he didn't say when that would happen.

In a wide-ranging newspaper interview, he also said he's planning to use his entire name — Barack Hussein Obama — at his swearing-in ceremony.

Obama spoke in an interview published in the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times today. He also said that, as the nation's first black president, he will make enforcing civil rights laws a top priority.

The piece covered other topics, including any spiritual support Obama sought during his White House bid. The president-elect says he set up a "sort of prayer circle across the country" of pastors who would pray for him on a daily conference call, which he would sometimes join.
