Slogans should be stand-alone messages, not reminders of something or someone on the other side. "Love Trumps Hate" was the worst ever, because it includes his name. It reminds you of him every time you look at it.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

First, it's still based on something they said. Second, it's generic, like is there really anybody who says they don't care(except you know who)? Third it's not giving a reason to vote Democratic.

Here's a good example, from a successful anti-littering campaign:
"Don't Mess with Texas."
