"It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled - Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America.” -Barack Obama

Inspired by the president's words, Greg Beauchamp, ad man and executive producer of the advertising documentary Art & Copy, has created this graphic and the subsequent poster for Barack Obama. Beauchamp was also responsible for the McCain Dog Poo flags during the 2008 election.

He says he hopes the image will get to Obama indirectly via internet pass along to exhibit that even everyday Americans have the power to reach the president. On Flickr, Beauchamp has embedded a timeline of when states joined the union into a tiled image of the poster.
