Maybe it's a little early

Or maybe not. After all, Barack Obama has already pulled off what few thought was possible by winning. Getting a street named after him seems like it's not all that out of line.

The Opa-locka City Commission voted on the name change consideration at the Nov. 12 meeting. The idea was proposed by former Vice Mayor Dorothy Johnson, who said no other city in Florida has yet named a street after the next president.
No doubt some right-winger who has made a big deal of Obama's celebrity will call this presumptuous, or will call it the latest example of Obamamania, and so on. Whatever. Opa-locka wants to get in on the ground floor, I say good for them.

Edit: On second thought, how about changing the name of the city to Obama-locka? That would be awesome.
