O vs O

According to the Google Ngram Viewer tool, Osama was ahead of Obama for a long time, by a 10:1 margin before 2002.  Though Obama recently scored the final win in 2011, Ngram doesn't presently go past 2008, and so doesn't show it.  Still, it's clear by Google that Obama had Osama beat by mid-2004, somewhat surprisingly.  I would have predicted that Osama would be ahead of Obama until 2007.
