My submission for Illustration Friday topic of "legendary". I figure anything with the title Legendary needs to include a broad sword in some form or another. So here's Barack Obama inserted into the King Arthur myth, pulling Excalibur from the stone.
Now, according to my research, The Lady of the Lake gave Arthur Excalibur. The sword in the stone is some other story that got blended into the Arthur legend, but I thought this made a better image. Besides, you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.
