if there is an Obama nation, it is situated in the eastern part of Africa, it straddles the equator, and, for the give away clue, its name starts with K and ends with A.
Obama’s like a disease in these parts and everyone’s caught the fever. The lead stories in today’s press are all about Obama. I just went through my copy of the Sunday Nation and Obama features, in photo or text, in a whopping 17 out of 51 pages [Classifieds included]. . .

Huge Obama billboards were put up in Nairobi and Kisumu, the provincial capital of the village Obama’s father hailed from. And the Prime Minister Raila Odinga led 10 Cabinet ministers in endorsing Obama’s candidacy.” . . .
