Artist Shepard Fairey designed the iconic “Hope” poster with the intention of making Barack Obama a nationalized man — now he is having second thoughts on his word choice.

While leaving a high-end Hollywood restaurant, a reporter asked Fairey:

“Given Obama’s track record now, would you put a different word besides “Hope” at the bottom of the image?”

The laughing response:

“A yeah, I’d put a few different ones.”

But none he was willing to tell the cameraman, aside from the word “drones.” Now that would have made for a different campaign wouldn’t it?
