    Interesting observation about candidate's names

    If you haven't noticed, just in the past few years something that has been historically unusual in the naming world occurred - in the U.S. more girls were given the #1 name (this year Sophia, and before that Isabella) than boys (Jacob). It's usually been the opposite, and it was by quite a large margin in the 1960s with Lisa vs. Michael. Interestingly, I've noticed the same pattern with the two major candidates for U.S. President this year: The candidates themselves have more unusual names than their wives. Barack and Willard or Mitt (depending on how you look at it) vs. Michelle and Ann.
