"Peaches" Obama

Here is a fun little story for you...the word "barack" means "peach" in Hungarian!! Amazing, right? They actually pronounce it differently (like "borotsk"), but it's spelled the same. My Hungarian teacher from orientation got very excited when the subject of politics came up and explained she liked to call him "Peaches" Obama. Apparently the Hungarian government is working to get the best peach jam from the countryside here in Hungary, and they are going to (or maybe already have at this point) send it to Mr. Barack Obama himself!

Okay...that is freaking awesome!!!!! SO, what's the political viewpoint from there? I'm assuming that if the government is sending Obama peach jam that they are in support of him becoming president. Thoughts?
