Obamaville, Colorado

According to Wikipedia, "a Hooverville was the popular name for shanty towns built by homeless people during the Great Depression.  They were named after the President at the time, Herbert Hoover, because he allegedly let the nation slide into depression.  The term was coined by Charles Michelson, publicity chief of the Democratic National Committee."

In 2009, what should homeless people call their tent cities?
