The only response to this less-than-subtle statement by Barack Obama staffers is this:
Unless of course you prefer this variation:

UPDATE II: Texas Rainmaker points out why Che was a plain ol' bad guy, and should not be deified:
1. Che was responsible for the execution of thousands of political prisoners in Cuba (most of them purely for their opposition to Castro’s communist policies or for no reason at all).But hey, he rode a motorcycle, he can't be that bad right?
2. Che enjoyed torturing and abusing the prisoners, including children.
3. Che was instrumental in setting up the Castro regime’s massive forced labor camps and secret police apparatus.
4. Che tried to organize campaigns of terrorism against civilians in the US and elsewhere (though he largely failed in these efforts).
UPDATE III: More Good insight:
"If you were running a candidate’s local campaign office, what would you put on the wall? Old Glory? The Texas flag? Or maybe the banner of a hostile Communist police state?"
