Michael Dukakis was the 65th governor of Massachusetts and ran with the democratic party in the 1988 presidential election against George W. Bush. Dukakis was the second Greek-American governor in US history and used the national flag of both the United States and Greece in his campaigning. A bantam chicken is also used as a campaign symbol perhaps as a metaphor for being desirable or especially fierce. The bantam is a small breed of chicken or duck that can also refer to dwarfism. The bantam can be considered a specialty breed and there are several varieties of bantam chicken in Greece that are commonly regarded as fighting chickens.
