Black Eagle

Obama has promised that he will reach out to each and every American - and I'm delighted to see that he is including the very first Americans in that promise, with an unprecedented outreach initiative to Native Americans in every state he visits. The Native American population is a traditionally Democratic voting block that he received relatively little attention from our leaders in the past. (Plus, you know, there's the centuries of genocide and land-grabbing. So they've got some cause for grievance.)

Obama was recently adopted by the Crow Nation and aquired a new honorary surname as a result: Black Eagle. I like it.
