CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) – Presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama sat down in Chicago Friday morning to discuss the economy with visiting Democratic governors, but all eyes were on the Illinois senator’s podium bearing, what might be described as, a quasi-presidential seal – a new Obama campaign logo.
The seal includes the same bald eagle as the actual presidential seal clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons, but instead of a shield covering the center of the eagle’s body, the Obama version displays the campaign’s trademark “O.” Unlike the Presidential seal, which includes the words “Seal of the President of the United States” around the circumference, “Obama for America” and “www.barackobama.com” grace the top and bottom of Obama's.
Finally, just above the eagle, in Latin, are the words – “vero possumus” – which translates to “yes we can,” the oft-heard chant at Obama rallies.
It remains to be seen how the new seal will play in the campaign’s quest to win over working-class voters.
What do you think of the logo? Your comments below.
No women with burka's or scarfs in the background of that seal eithier.
Change you can xerox.
Mc Cain/Palin 08'
I think it's awesome.
Obama for president.
Oh brother! Why not just tatoo it on his...oh never mind.
typo: It actually says "Obama for America"
is this the only news we have a logo. Come on lets talk about issues. I am so sick of this crap issues are what matter not all this other crap.
i like it
Yes mr. President!
I am a republican in Ohio and I am with you all the way to the white house!
Hey Democrats for McCain.......Thank you for voting with us, However we feel you are laughing stock of politics and could never truely welcome you turncoats......we will enjoy your votes and "USE" you to the fullest. Do you expect anything from us in return.......LMAO
Yes We Definitely Can.
Don't care!! He is not getting my vote. Don't trust him. McCain
I THINK IT IS GREAT. IT LOOKS PRESIDENTIAL. YES WE CAN.
At least they were smart enough not to make it green, so that video artists could have a field day like they did to McCain. Blue is an easy color to work with, but not as flexible as green.
I think it needs a second color in it though.
I think the "fake seal" is totally inappropriate and in poor taste.
This is scary, he even wants to change the American logo-seal, by replacing it with his name. Americans please wake up and do not vote for Obama. Are these the kind of changes you really want.?He will turn this country into a Muslim sect, Just wait and see.
I like it "YES WE CAN" in any language is great.,nice touch.
A correction: The seal says "Obama for America" not "Barack for America" as stated.
Love it. Go for the gusto! Yes, the can be an African American in the "White" House.
Offensive. This man has super imposed his image on top of MLK and now has the arrogance to infuse his logo into our country's symbol. What next? Obama with a crown of thorns?
WHO CARES!!!!!!!!!!!! I DON'T KNOW YET "WHO EXACTLY IS HE"?
I think it's arrogant, as usual.
This is upsetting. Obama is presumptuous and clearly out of control and will stop at nothing spreading lies about his own record and that of his opponents.
What will he change next. This is America founded by our forefathers. Bet they are turning in their gaves.
he is so friggin arrogant....
I like it. Very creative !
Great cant wait for the $1 to have Obamas face on it... In Obama we trust... I'm starting to hate him more every day!
