Default Barack Obama High School

http://www.rockymountainnews.com/new...ck-obama-high/

you'll love this, Nate.

A Boulder High student group is pushing to rename the school after a hot new historic figure: Barack Obama.

“We initiate this campaign in order to honor the momentous achievement of his election as an African-American, inspire the community with his ideals of unity and hope, and reflect the progressive spirit that is shared by both Barack Obama and our school environment,” the Student Worker Club said in a press release today.

The group’s president, Ben Raderstorf, stressed in the statement that it scheduled a campus press conference to pitch the Obama High plan on Thursday, “the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth to commemorate both the role he had in making the election of Barack Obama possible and the social progress that has been made since he issued the emancipation proclamation.”

Well, it's bound to happen. Here in Texas, we have schools named after our State Representatives. However, I would be very surprised if Texas ever has a school named in honor of Obama. Actually, I change that, because if it were proposed and any group decided against it, they would be called racist.
