Since the election, several spaces at Berkeley's Ashby BART Station flea market, for example, are filled with Obama earrings, clocks, framed pictures of the first family-to-be and the ubiquitous commemorative ceramic plates.The official online inauguration store - not to be confused with the Obama campaign store - opened Thursday with designer T-shirts and totes from Zac Posen, Tory Burch, Alexander Wang and others in addition to the usual commemorative buttons, coins, photos and cuff links.The phenomenon has gone global. In France, a businessman has created bubble-gum-flavored Obama soda in a red and blue can emblazoned with the "Yes We Can" motto. And the Times of London recently reported that an inflatable Nativity scene featuring the Obama family was a holiday best-seller in Naples, Italy.
