BLUE BELL, PA.–The Obama campaign picked a bucolic corner of a community college campus for an outdoor session on Monday not with students but with adults to discuss the economy. At the end. Michelle Obama appeared and hung out for awhile with some of the participants. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he wanted to keep the focus on “bread and butter issues.” The day before the Pennsylvania primary, Obama at this stop did not slam his rivals, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) or Sen. John McCain (R-Az.)

Obama said during the first 100 days of an Obama administration, he would review the tax code for fairness–on the tax and revenue side.
