Stop hear again. It's true and it's hurt. It seem that most of my interpreter were against on Clinton. I was youth and clueless. Shush

If that's true, then that's a shame. Interpreters shouldn't be injecting their opinions into the way they sign. That's wrong.

the sign i learned was make an "O" (around your chest area, watevs) then turn it into a 4 with your palm towards you, bringing it up past your shoulder. this is supposed to be like the o for obama, then the little rainbow thingy he has in his logo

hope it helps

"Thingy??!!" "watevs?" (snarly, snarly, Bottesini.) Matilda is missed for her function to tell newcomers, "skip the slang, abbreviations, and misspellings."

Deaf people see the language and when you write that way it is confusing. You can't write phonetically. Miss Chase too because of his funny rants against phonics!

My spouse really likes the one-hand sign that starts with 'president' and ends with the black power fist. I am not keen on this sign but it does show black pride for those who are comfortable with this symbol.

I'd sign "O" cleaning my left shoulder. Because of this!

I use fingerspelling for Obama, like I did fingerspelling Bush and other president, except for Lincoln and Washington, they have sign name. I don't think whole the america would use Obama same sign name. unless if he show the sign name on tv news lol.

actually, i can understand why she signed "o" and "rainbow." the logo for obama consisted of a rainbow that i believe was colored red, white and blue.
if i am wrong about that, i hope someone will correct me.

Funny thing? This was the exact sign I used before I knew it was really his sign name!

I've seen my SVRS interpreter using it as well. It's quite dominant.

I always saw it as a sign of victory and change.
