Cleenton or Obama?

A Ugandan man reminded me yesterday morning that tomorrow is the Pennsylvania primaries. I'm glad someone around here is keeping up with international news.

If I get into any extended conversation with a local, inevitably I am asked, "Are you voting for Cleenton or Obama?" Never McCain. There's no particular dislike for Clinton here, as far as I can tell, but there's certainly great enthusiasm for Obama. Though the Provost of the Cathedral worried that he was "too liberal," one man, a total stranger who asked me this question as I sat next to him on a matatu, gave me five when I told him I had voted for Obama.
