Obama Leads Bin Laden in Brazil. How do you give yourself a leg up in Brazilian politics? Change your name to Barack Obama. Six candidates in Brazil's local elections have done just that. But office seekers haven't stopped at Obama. Two hundred have renamed themselves after Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, which just happens to be the name of the immensely popular president of Brazil. Other people looking for the public's votes include a Bill Clinton, a Jorge Bushi, and one Chico Bin Laden.
