Last weekend, the radio was on and Son heard the phrase "Senator Obama." He turned to me and asked, "Is Senator O-ba-ma from Star Wars?" Until then, I guess, he hadn't heard the word "senator" except in 1 and 2.
When you think about it, "Obama" would be a perfectly good Star Wars name. Fits right in with Amidala, Windu, Kenobi, Yoda, Organa.
