BRASIL : Candidates Adopt Famous Names...To Win Elections.


      Elections in Brasil can be creative and colorful.
      At least 16 municipal candidates in Belo Horizonte have taken on the name 'Obama'...to get votes for a 7 October election.
      Last year a real TV clown scored a big win in his congressional election.
     And over 140 candidates on municipal ballots...have adopted the name 'Dilma'.
     Of course, Brasil's current leader...is President Dilma Rousseff...but most citizens simply refer to her...as Dilma.
