Obama-ite

derivation; noun
A supporter of Barack Obama.
 
It is possibly that the coining of this word was motivated by the parallel with 'Paulite.' This would be appropriate because the neologism 'Ron Paulization' had previously served to (and was possibly for coined to) describe Barack Obama. However, the probably primary motivation for coining the word was to have a short term for 'a supporter of Barack Obama.'
Etymology : The name 'Obama' combined with the Latin affix '-ite.'
Source : "Kirchick is pleased as punch with the incoming Obama-ites, who appear to have abandoned their "netroots" early on and ceded the foreign policy realm to the pro-war Clinton wing of the party." (http://www.lewrockwell.com/raimondo/raimondo12.html, 11/25/08)
