Washington - President Barack Obama’s inaugural team is opening an online and brick-and-mortar store to sell souvenirs including a commemorative poster by famed artist Chuck Close.


The Presidential Inaugural Committee launched the online store Thursday. A retail store a few blocks from the White House was scheduled to open Jan. 11. The goods, ranging from $2.50 rulers to $30 champagne flutes to a $7,500 medallion set, also will be sold at some Washington hotels around the Jan. 21 inauguration.

Close, a long-time Obama supporter, designed the $100 poster in the pixelated photorealistic style he is famous for. Only 2,013 are available.

Obama’s inaugural committee had a similar store for his first swearing-in four years ago. Proceeds go toward fundraising efforts for the parade, balls and other inaugural celebrations.

Uhmm, didn't they invent deodorant to combat and prevent B.O.?

What's with the paw print? I step on Obama? I claw at Obama?

There's no deodorant to stop him. Like the article on obesity said, when everyone around you is fat, so you don't know that people aren't supposed to look like that, here too, when everyone around you loves BO, and gets free stinky money from him, that's the only way people know.
