November 4, 2008 - O Happy Day!

"Obama and Sweet Potato Pie", by Mark Danner, in The New York Times:

When Obama launched into his story with "Because I love pie," a woman out in that sea of cheering, laughing people shouted back, "I'll make you pie, baby!" and to the general hooting laughter the candidate returned, "Oh yeah, you gonna make me pie?" Then, after a beat, amid even more raucous laughter, and several other female voices shouting out invitations, "You gonna make me sweet potato pie? " More shouts and laughter. "All you gonna make me pie?"
