By renaming the peak Denali, an Athabascan word meaning "the high one," Obama waded into a sensitive and decades-old conflict between residents of Alaska and Ohio. Alaskans have informally called the mountain Denali for years, but the federal government recognizes its name invoking the 25th president, William McKinley, who was born in Ohio and assassinated early in his second term.

"With our own sense of reverence for this place, we are officially renaming the mountain Denali in recognition of the traditions of Alaska Natives and the strong support of the people of Alaska," said Interior Secretary Sally Jewell.

Denali is also known as the amazing, confident, strong and smart girl next door who manages to do everything better than you and for some reason puts up with your bullshit even though your an asshole.

They've been disputing the name of the mountain since the 1970s.  Why not just rename it Mt. Obama and be done with it.  Carve his face into, too!
