In an attempt to portray both a down to earth populism and find a metro sexual sensibility, the Obama campaign has named a campaign flower. The dandelion has been chosen to represent the ubiquitous nature of Barack's support, its resilient ability to grow almost anywhere and the dandelion's property to be made into an intoxicating solution.
Clinton advisers not to be outdone have been presenting the bloody tiger lily as her flower of choice for its fierce name, the cat like claw like tentacles and its association in myth with shedding blood.
McCain has named the dried rose because of its durability and desiccated state.
Both Hillary and Johnny McC have attacked Obama's flower in ads depicting a dandelion gone to seed and the respective candidates picking it and blowing its seed pods into the air.
