Obama Pulls “Presidential” Seal

Barack Obama and his team obviously listen to criticism. The presumptive Democratic nominee last week debuted a new campaign logo, a play on the presidential seal, but yanked it in the face of bad reviews:

[Slate’s] Mickey Kaus predicted it would be disappeared over the weekend. His exact words were: “But unless David Axelrod is insane, the thing will never be seen again.” Kaus was right. While we don’t have full details, someone at Obama’s press center, when asked if the seal would be used going forward said simply, “No.”

Good, because the seal reeked of hubris, not something you want when going into a general election…
