WEBSTER CITY, IA.–Barack Obama picks up two boxes of Christmas cookies and some fruit during a stop at a Hy-Vee grocery. The cashier rang up $12.46. I asked him when he was last in a grocery store. “I have to admit,” he said, “I have not grocery shopped since I started this campaign. It actually feels pretty good.”
Obama made his first appearence, albeit short on the press bus when the entourage was ready to leave to drop off the cookies. (photos by Lynn Sweet)
