Just to let you all know, I am partially deaf.

Well, now that President Obama is in office, the Deaf Community finally feels that our voices are heard! Because of this, we have given President Obama a name sign. (Funnily, I may have psychically picked up on the sign long before it was decided because it was the exact sign I used.)

So here is the link below to the video.

So, congratulations President Obama, you are officially a part of the Deaf Community!

That's pretty neat, especially since they explain how they came up with it. I have a thing for language, so I think that's really interesting.

The YouTube video you linked to is set to Private and I'm not able to view it. Sad  I did a search and found this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1qJZ_A3fjk

The gentleman has several suggestions for Obama's sign name, was yours also one of his?  Or a different one?

My brother is deaf, and I am embarassingly rusty with my sign language (but I can fingerspell like a daemon! *lol*).  He and I haven't really discussed politics much, and when we have it was over IM or email.  Next time he's in town, I'll have to ask him if he's got a sign name for the new president.

(Our sign name for the former president was 'stupid' with a B).
