Hey, maybe they just thought "BO" was too unflattering...

I don't know whether the Obama campaign has done so, but plenty of others use HRC in print.

Reducing your opponent to initials, regardless of what they are, is a little petty, but compared to other slights (real or imagined), this doesn't strike me as very significant.

Not just that he's a Muslim. But that he's suspiciously close to having the same name as one of our recent adversaries.

I don't think it would play as well if his name was Barack Mohammed.

As for the comparison with HRC, I think the point was that the Clinton team explicitly changed the cited text from "OBAMA" to "BHO". (Although, they've now changed it back).
