It's Called Obama Etiquette?

There's a new teaching method sweeping the nation. It could actually save the world or atleast the kids who need motivation, a role model, or an example to learn by. If you haven't already guessed it, im talking about none other than President-elect Barrack Obama.

Per Washington Post:

Sherry Jones was driving her 13-year-old son, Malcolm, to school the other morning when he mentioned something about some kid he didn't like.

Something about the kid being a jerk.

Jones told him that wasn't kind. When you speak of people, she said, always speak good of them.

"Look at Barack! . . . During the campaign, no matter what, Obama always took the high road," she told him. "During the debates when John McCain would say a dig, Barack would never react. . . . He was always positive."

You could call it Obama discipline or Obama etiquette, and it goes something like this:

Get up! Do you think Obama would have slept late and not made it to school on time?

Why don't you guys share? Don't you think Obama would want you to share?

How much did you read? Obama would have finished the book by now.

If you have time to read the whole article I would recommend it, its quite entertaining. I do wonder though for those who are religous, has Obama replaced God? I mean it's only a matter of time before kids and teenagers will be wearing "what would obama do" bracelets..
