Five new species of colourful, freshwater fish have been discovered and named, patriotically, after Obama, Clinton, Roosevelt, Carter and Gore. Having a fish named after you might be almost as good as getting a second term. The species are darters, the smallest members of the perch family, and were found in river drainages in eastern North America. This beautiful specimen is Etheostoma obama.
