Depends on the graphic you want to spin. If you are looking for a 3-D type of rotation then you will need one of 2 things, either a third party program like Swish3D, or a lot of time on your hands.

I use the second method. Frame by Frame animation into a single MC.

For a simple method and non-3D you can try this:

# Make your graphic on the stage.
# Convert to MC
# On it's own layer place the graphic on Frame 1 and make a new keyframe down the timeline somewhere (Say 30 for now with an FPS of 30)
# On the 30 Frame click your MC and choose Modify>>Transform>>Flip [vertical or horizontal here]*
# On Frame 1 choose "Create Motion Tween"
Then test your movie and watch it spin...

If you want 3D the method is the same as above but instead of motion tween and flip horitz/vert. you will add a keyframe in every frame from 1 to 30 and redraw your graphic by hand at a slightly different angle until you reach the end.
