When the people from Obama learned about Barack Obama they started to support him and also find different ways to make money from this opportunity. For example, a local company decided to produce “obama-manju” (Manju is a type of Japanese traditional sweet) and they are selling tons of it. This is how an “obama-manju” looks like:

    I know who they’d vote for. Imagine 4 years of free publicity!
