Barack Obama is about to get his own mountain.
Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister W. Baldwin Spencer wrote a letter to Obama on Wednesday congratulating him on his victory in the presidential election. To show that he meant it, Spencer said he would take "immediate measures" to have Boggy Peak, the Caribbean nation's highest mountain, renamed "Mount Obama."
While Mount Rushmore has a peak of 5,725 feet and Mount Washington in New Hampshire has a peak of 6,288 feet, the soon-to-be Mount Obama has a height of only 1,319 feet.
Spencer added that he hopes Obama visits the region soon, perhaps as early as next year.

Read Spencer's letter below.
His Excellency, Barack Obama
President Elect of the United States of America
Antigua and Barbuda joins the American people, and the peoples of all nations, in celebrating your historic election as President of the United States of America.
As Chairman of the Group 77 and China, and as Chairman of the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community, I am conscious of the promise of your presidency in shaping a new paradigm in America's relationship with the other nations of the world.
Your election will not only transform America, it can transform the world.
Your message of change will ignite hope and action in people of many countries who might still be passive in the face of inadequacies and injustice.
Your manifest devotion to family will strengthen families around the planet.
On behalf of the people and the Government of Antigua and Barbuda, I take this opportunity to extend our condolences on the passing of your beloved grandmother.
In lasting tribute to your election, I shall take immediate measures for Antigua and Barbuda's highest mountain peak to be dedicated in your honour and renamed "Mount Obama".
The people of Antigua and Barbuda and the rest of the Caribbean keenly anticipate your visit to our region for the Summit of the Americas, in the early months of your presidency.
With assurances of my highest esteem,
W. Baldwin Spencer
