Obama at Ben’s Chili Bowl

On Sunday afternoon, Prez-to-be Obama showed up at Ben’s Chili Bowl, a D.C. institution in my neighborhood of Columbia Heights. Co-worker Aaron Graham was there with his wife, Amy, and son Elijah. Aaron wrote:

Yesterday, Amy, Elijah, and I were having a nice little lunch at Ben’s Chili Bowl with some friends from out of town. And guess who walks in unannounced! I told him I worked for Jim Wallis at Sojourners and then introduced him to Elijah, he bent down to grab Elijah’s hand and said, “hi Elijah, I’m Barack.” Then he said “you work for Jim? Congratulations thats great, tell him hello.”
