Has Obama Fever Swept India?

Wow, two vaguely political posts today... Sorry about that!

I attended a Democrats Abroad event last week - and registered to vote. At the event I picked up an Obama button that now sits on my bulletin board at work.

Today, one of my office mates came by & saw the pin. "What is that?" she asked. "This Pin?" I responded. "Yes That!" I took a moment to process the fact that she clearly had no recognition of the Obama name.

"It's a political pin, Barack Obama is running for US President." I informed her.

"Oh." she said, before quickly perking up and adding, "I really liked the design, I would like to wear it on my jeans."
