The Woman Card

During a victory speech last Tuesday, Donald Trump said, "If Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card.” A week later, I find this banner ad at the top of the New York Times home page. The ad leads to a form where you have the option of donating to Clinton’s campaign. Since this comment, the campaign has raised $2.4Million! I can't wait to get my card.

The Hillary logo was designed by Pentagram partner Michael Bierut. It has been criticized for imitating Obama’s landmark “O” logo which was designed by Sol Sender. It is hard not to see the similarities when they are side-by-side. Nevertheless, I like its graphic quality and the fact that it doesn't rely on political clichés like so many other campaign logos.
