Obama Supporters Change Their Names to Hussein

1 07 2008

Politician: Barack Obama

A nice vanity square-esque photocall in the New York time for Barack Obama today.  A group of students of differering faiths have changed their middle name to Hussein.  A good way of communicating that you don’t have to be Muslim (or a former Iraqi President) to have Hussein as part of your name.

Obama is pretty name-conscious – in his book ‘the audacity of hope’ he sets the scene after 9/11 by saying he seriously considered changing his own name as it was just slightly too close to someone elses…
