This whole campaign, as regular readers will know, I've been keeping an eye on political nicknames. They continue to bubble up — was it Olbermann who just used McFlailin? Still, I'm finding a lot of the action on the campaign trail too alarming to joke about.
But Barack Obama hasn't gotten much in the way of usable monikers that I can see, positive or negative. In fact, the best one I've found, and I herewith abandon the search, is Hopey. Urban Dictionary has an entry for it (here) and wonkette uses it pretty regularly.
