      as I'm guessing you don't use it with disrespect.

      But others are using it to laugh at him for his struggle to come to terms with who he is as a mixed-race citizen in this often unkind society.

      I just don't want us to feel comfortable reducing his personal struggle to a level of familiarity which seems disrespectful.  I also don't want it to be used against us as the right-wing weaves together their eventual, disgusting portrayal of Obama.

      Just like they did to the Clintons, et al.  We need to be vigilant and on the offensive.
