Sim Podemos? Part II


Voters across Brazil said Nao to the Barack Obamas of Brazil on October 5 as candidates with the name of Obama went 0-8 in municipal elections.

So what now? Depends on the Obama. Claudio Henrique-Barack Obama, the Obama du jour who might not have received a single vote, is now an Obama for life. "I'll still keep the political name Obama," said Sr. Claudio. "Not only because of the admiration I have for him, but also because it is the nickname the people gave to me. It's how they know me."

Still waiting on a comment from candidate Jorge Bushi...
