Today's political memorabilia is dominated by the campaign T-shirt, baseball cap, bumper sticker, and coffee mug; bandannas are rarely produced as an official campaign item. However, the George W. Bush campaign created a whole line of "ranch" items reflecting the president's Texas roots, including this bandanna. In the age of text-messaging, it is assumed that voters will have no trouble identifying the candidate by a single initial.
