Unable to find any such Facebook group devoted to that question, I went about creating the interest group.
I went about inviting 50 or so friends to become members of the group and suggest Native leaders they see as embodying the president's qualities.
Now, I plan to step aside and see what people come up with (assuming anyone's interested enough to join the group).
So tell me, who in Indian Country do you think could one day be a Native Obama?
As I said in No Natives for President? the right candidate could unite Indian country and make a run for the White House. I don't know many tribal leaders or lawyers--at least not well--but I think they'd make good candidates. In fact, I'm sure there are many fine candidates among them. It's just a matter of finding the right ones and coaxing them to run--presumably with the backing of gaming tribes.
