Illinois Senator/Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Usually, the "Hussein" is added by critics (conservative politicians, Fox News, the people of West Virginia) to draw parallels with Saddam Hussein.
Barack is actually named after his father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., who was born before the Iraqi leader. Hussein is actually a very popular Arabic name which means good or handsome. The Hussein is often used to fuel the omnipresent "Secret Muslim" rumors, which is ironic since Saddam was a secular leader.
"Did you know that his full name is Barack Hussein Obama?"--Steve Doocy, multiple times.
"I don't like the Hussein. I've had enough of Hussein!"--some West Virginia voter that was aired on many newscasts.

An American political party. They are well-known for having numerous flaws, such as lack of general ideas, hypocrisy (touting free speech and then growing irritated any time anybody says something that could be construed as a slur), and lack of party identity (though 90% of African-Americans vote for this party, its longest-tenured member of the Senate is a former KKK leader). However, it also has some positive qualities, most notably the fact that they are not the Republican Party.
The Democratic Party may not be a great option, but it's certainly better than voting Republican.
