The latest accessory for fashionable Democrats: The O Ring

Several of the Democrats gathered at The Westin Seattle tonight are sporting a new accessory — “The O Ring,” an inflatable circle bearing President Obama’s trademark campaign logo.

Richard May, a 45-year-old from Blaine on the Canadian border, said he had about 2,000 of the rings made to celebrate the president.

“It’s like the a number 1 sports fan finger,” May said. “This is the Obama O.”

May explained that he is supporting the president because his opponent, Republican Mitt Romney, has been inconsistent.

“You don’t even know who Romney is,” he said.
