I don't see a problem with this

... naming a school after Barack Obama that is. Yeah, that's right. I said I don't see a problem with it. (Volokh disagrees, to whom the h/t for this story goes.) Naming an elementary school is a fairly paltry matter in the whole scheme of things, and the mere election of Obama is historic in itself. Besides, if Obama ends up a total loser of a chief exec, the school can always be renamed again!

This is a far cry from wanting a national holiday for the guy. Now that is a big deal and, in my opinion, requires the demonstration of a superb tenure as president.

Hmmm...a holiday, eh? A bit premature but, in any case, what for? There will come a time that it would be just like any other holiday...just an excuse for retail, sales, a day off, over-indulgence and nobody will remember why!

I seem to remember the left freaking out when conservatives wanted to name all kinds of things after Reagan. Hell, they fought him on renaming an airport. Also, there may be some regret later on if things don't go well for Obama.
