While waiting on the National Mall to see the official DC Fourth of July Fireworks Blowout (don't bother; highly overrated and overcrowded), I walked by dozens of small carts selling street meat, water bottles, glowsticks, etc.
Oh, and one thing more.
"O-bama, O-bama, get your O-bama t-shirts right here, change we can believe in, get your Barack Obama t-shirts..."
Every time I walked by a person selling Obama merch, I got all happy inside. Then I realized something that made me even happier.
No one, anywhere, was trying to sell a John McCain t-shirt.
