Barack Obama was in Philadelphia yesterday for a Democratic fundraiser, and naturally got a craving for the local specialty: cheesesteaks. He stopped by Reading Terminal Market and ordered a few sandwiches to go from Carmen's Famous Italian Hoagies and Cheesesteaks, as well as some mint chocolate chip ice cream and some apples (but only after a vendor suggested he get something a little more nutritious to go with his meal). Also, he bought a cheesesteak for a passerby, which is very sweet.
