Another Obama “presidential” seal?

Via Ace and Stop the ACLU, it looks like the design team at the Barack Obama campaign have too much time on their hands. On their campaign website, the background image adapts the basics of the presidential seal — again — into an Obama campaign logo. This time, though, they’ve managed a little subtlety:
This time, Team Obama avoided the faux Latin for the normal “E Pluribus Unum”, but the rest of the design still screams “presumptuous”. Once again, we have the O Logo in the dead center, and an oddly oriented eagle — or what appears to be an eagle — clutching nothing but olive branches.
Didn’t Barack Obama learn from his last attempt to fashion his own “seal”? This looks a lot like compensation for either an unbridled ego or a person worried about his lack of credentials.
