clearly unintentional.

basically the problem is that Barack Obama, though American, has a  
non-american name and surname (originally from his father from Kenya)  
that's why it's not included by default in the US dictionary.

if Barack Obama had italo-american origin and was called Matteo Rossi you  
would see again red underline from the spell-checker.
