Twitter gives Hillary Clinton’s campaign logo a thumbs down
Clinton is getting flack over her campaign logo on social media platform, Twitter.
JOHANNESBURG - United States Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has a received a cold reaction to her new campaign logo.
While Americans don't seem to mind that Clinton announced her bid for the 2016 presidency this week, they seem to mind that her logo, "looks like a first draft."
I'm still waiting for Hilary Clinton to release her real campaign logo.
That thing looks like a first draft.

While there are a few who seem to like it…
I do like Hilary Clinton's new logo! It's a bit generic but memorable and encompasses the idea of moving forward pic.twitter.com/0GLG23mMsX

The two America-blue rectangles followed by a red arrow dashing across the middle, meant to symbolise the H in 'Hillary', has been described as a rip-off the WikiLeaks logo, a rip-off of a road-side hospital sign, or 'too simplistic', as though it was made in Microsoft Paint.

Holy shit, Hilary Clinton's campaign logo is bad. Does she not realize half of it is a HUGE RED ARROW POINTING TO THE RIGHT

Between Hilary Clinton, the Milwaukee Bucks and Army West Point, I don't know which logo I dislike the most.

If you're Hilary Clinton, with the logo behind you, it points left. If you're looking at her, it points right.

The whole Hilary Clinton presidential logo looks like something you'd see on an estate agents branding.

I will choose things based on their logo and nothing else. Sodalicious over Swig, Apple over Windows.
Sorry Hilary Clinton.

Hilary Clinton's new logo is as bad as Aziz Ansari's new book cover.
(I'll still vote/buy both, though)

Hilary Clinton bought her logo on Fiverr.

Clinton returns to the campaign trail seven years after losing the Democratic Party nomination in 2008 to Barack Obama.
She has been a high-profile figure in American politics for more than two decades since her husband, Bill Clinton, won the presidency in 1992, and her fame still eclipses her other likely Democratic contenders and Republican opponents.
One of her biggest challenges will be to show a more down-to-earth side while connecting with ordinary voters.
Critics, including progressives within her own party, say that after decades as the wife of former President Bill Clinton, a US senator and secretary of state she has grown out of touch.
