On the Obama website, they have attempted to personalize the logo for each type of American. On the one hand, it seems a bit silly for this candidate to compartmentalize the nation into groups of people. On the other, it really shows the extendability of this designs. See each in detail below the fold.
…and here they are
You have to give him credit for featuring an airplane, often seen as a faux pas in this day and age.
Looks like the wallpaper in my grandmas house.
Well, now no-one can question the symbolism of the original design.
I want to see more detail - what's going on back there?
Nice torch, but again - what going on back there? Those are the same African Americans from that last one!
Like walking on a fluffy cloud.
Wait... whats wrong with the word 'native'?
No need to stay within the lines. Is that a pentagram AND a unicorn?
Nice and simple. Or, are those people waiting in line for a handout? I kid, I kid.
This one seems a little fuzzy... What is this supposed to be portraying? A fast moving sombrero as seen from above?
So often the LGBTQ community is forced to shoehorn that darn flag into a logo. Here instead, it fits perfectly.
As does paper!
Less we not forget the veterans. (Notice how 'veterans' is in the StarWars font?)
Or, the women! (The third in from the right is pretty hot)
Wonder why this one goes in a different direction? And he looks in such pain wearing that Elizabethan collar.

Ha! The veteran one is totally starwars. And why does it have a black line around it?

“It seems a bit silly for this candidate to compartmentalize the nation into groups of people”
The Democrat party has been doing that for decades. It’s all about what group you’re part of, not who you are. Nothing unusual there.

Compartmentalization may be what the party has done for decades (I don’t agree, but I won’t argue the point) but most certainly is not what the Obama Campaign has done. His whole candidacy has been about bringing people together regardless of what “group” each one fits into. In these logos the campaign acknowledges the cultural and political diversity of it’s supporters and lets them know that they have a seat at the table, to use an old cliché. If you went to BarackObama.com, you’d notice that behind each of these logos is a statement of how an Obama presidency could affect you as a member of a particular group. But they all end the same way; that we all have to work together. Echoing his “50 state strategy” Barack Obama made a conscious choice to ask all people to support him, including those who aren’t traditionally thought of as the base of the Democratic Party. Veterans and people of faith are two particularly good examples. Contrast that with the Republic Party which quite explicitly stated that gays, abortion rights advocates, feminists, and the poor were not welcome. The variation in these logos says “We see you, we want you, and you’re welcome here.” Only a cynic would see the attempt to reach out and expand the party base as divisive. Granted, I have the luxury of hindsight but at 11:00 pm eastern standard time we found out which strategy the American people responded to.

[...] Could it be? Surely not… Yes, it is true. Commenter Mark Antony reminded us of yet another posting that contained a unicorn: “Good Sirs, You listed this set of ‘moving images’ as thee origin of themithical Obamacorn? Your own bloggith doth have an earlier incarnation in the Kids for Obama banner.” [...]
