I’m seeing a fair amount of graphic design comment on Hillary Clinton’s logo for her 2016 presidential campaign. I’ll leave that alone here. I want to focus on the symbolism itself (figure 1).
First, notice that the arrow points to the right. Second, notice that the arrow is red. Both point to conservatism.
Some of my friends will no doubt vote for Clinton on the claim that she is a liberal. Her logo says otherwise, and as near as I can tell, her sole reason for running is that she believes she is entitled to the position, just as in 2008, when she delayed long past the point of plausibility a concession that Barack Obama had won a majority of delegates for the Democratic Party nomination.
