Not one soul had anything “nice” to say about Barack in the Outer Banks of North Carolina (nobody had anything not so nice to say either). Basically, a stranger’s visual confirmation of Obama on the button immediately misdirected all eye contact between that person and myself. Maybe had I been sporting a little Dixie flag on my opposite lapel, a different accent, and sensible footwear folks would have felt a bit more at ease.

Good seafood down there, but lay off the blue crabs.


August 1, 2007. Barack Obama, Travel.
