Symbolism

The Obama campaign has used symbolism throughout this election. From beneath the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin to his historic acceptance speech in Grant Park the imagery was so masterfully assembled that Michelangelo himself would be awestruck. So, what are we to make of this?

Well, if we were to believe the biologists...

"Warning colours are associated with some quality or weapon which renders the possessor unpleasant or dangerous, such as unpalatability, an evil odour, a sting, the poison-fang, etc. The object being to warn an enemy off, these colours are also called aposematic."
-- Wikipedia

Maybe red for communism?

Maybe red because it is a color in the fashion word that displays "power"?
