    Lets say I saw Senator Obama in real life yesterday.
    If Obama becomes the next president of the United States, would I be accurate in saying "I have seen President Obama in real life"

    Person A: "Yeah, I believe you."
    Person B: "No you saw Obama when he was just a Senator, not President Obama."

    You know, I could see people arguing this either way. I'd remove the issue altogether and say "Barack Obama" or just "Obama".

    Solomon Grundy
    In 1944, this creature rose from the swamp, with tremendous strength and some dormant memories that for example allowed him to speak English, but not knowing what he was, and not remembering Cyrus Gold or his fate. Wandering throughout the swamp, he encountered two escaped criminals, killed them, and took their clothes. When they asked him his name, he simply muttered that he had been born on Monday. Reminded of an old nursery rhyme about a man born on Monday, the thugs named the creature "Solomon Grundy".

    I saw future President Obama. Is in my opinion the correct terminonogy. Although people would argue you saw a different title, you still saw the same person.
