At the Roanoke Civic Center today, Barack Obama told a story of how he couldn’t get his favorite, sweet potato pie, at a campaign munchie stop in Ohio. He explained that he did get some coconut cream pie and that the owner of the restaurant was a tried and true Republican whose business wasn’t doing all that well. Obama tried the coconut pie and encouraged the owner to try the Democrats for a change.
When he was hungry, going through Ohio, he stopped and asked where the best place to get pie was. How about here in Roanoke? Where’s the best place to get a piece of pie? And do they have Obama’s favorite? Sweet potato pie?
