Caligula Would Have Blushed.

Barack Obama (pbuh) has been compared to many people during his rise to where he is now, JFK, Jimmy Carter, Tony Blair and no doubt many more. If it really is the case that he is going to be delivering his acceptence speech to the Democrat conference in front of a faux classical temple, then perhaps the best comparison is with Caligula.

One thing the Greeks frowned upon a great deal was hubris.

Update: Rumours that Obama is going to appoint his horse to fill his old Senate position when he become President are completely unfounded. Although he is having an ass as his V.P.
