Presidential hopeful Barack Obama spoked on Friday in Chicago from a podium which spotted a seal mimicking the U.S. presidential seal. The eagle on the seal had Obama's O campaign logo instead of a shield, and said in Latin "Vero possumus" (Yes we can), instead of classic "E pluribus unum" (Out of many, one). The seal also had Obama's web site address on it.
Design any seal mimicking U.S. Presidential seal. For example - think what seal famous companies, celebrities, politicians or even cartoon characters would have. Can we design it? Obama says "Vero possumus" (Yes we can).
