What Is Hillary Clinton's Brand?


Weyland-Yutani has the famous WY logo. Even more recognizable is the Communist Party’s hammer and sickle. And everyone knows the timeless silhouette of Darth Vader’s cape and helmet. But what image best represents Hillary Clinton for 2016? The Washington Post reports:

Clinton and her image-makers are sketching ways to refresh the well-established brand for tomorrow’s marketplace. In their mission to present voters with a winning picture of the likely candidate, no detail is too big or too small — from her economic opportunity agenda to the design of the “H” in her future campaign logo.

“It’s exactly the same as selling an iPhone or a soft drink or a cereal,” said Peter Sealey, a longtime corporate marketing strategist. “She needs to use everything a brand has: a dominant color, a logo, a symbol. . . . The symbol of a Mercedes is a three-pointed star. The symbol of Coca-Cola is the contour bottle. The symbol of McDonald’s is the golden arches. What is Clinton’s symbol?”

If it wouldn’t be too forward, I would humbly suggest a hen pecking at other people’s money.
