I think Obama's middle & last names will become an asset, not a liability

because people who don't know him, and wonder about it, will be forced to get to know him to see what he's really like. Once they get the exposure to him, I think they'll like what they see and hear.

Even if it's just a matter of curiosity due to his unique name, getting to know any candidate better is one of the keys to winning the Presidency. By the time 2008 rolls around, Barack Hussein Obama will be as delightful a sound in most American households as any other of your favorite politicians, probably even more so, the way that man inspires.
