mmmmm, candy

Detroit Free Speech: He declined the Obama burger – a third of a pound of farm-fed Escanaba beef topped with jalapenos, grilled onions and cheddar cheese – but President Barack Obama still took Donckers restaurant by storm today, grabbing a club sandwich and some caramels before heading to Northern Michigan University for his speech to 1,400 people.

“It was overwhelming. I was on the verge of tears,” said Jennifer Ray, one of the owners of Donckers and a Chicago native, earning her the “homey” tag from Obama today. “He was just so genuine with a great sense of humor.”

Obama ordered the D.J.B. – a club sandwich with three cheeses and three meats on three different types of bread ….Ashley Erickson, 24, of Marquette, took Obama’s order and was struck by how cordial he was.

After signing some books, a couple of menus and paying for his own lunch (leaving a “generous” tip, according to Ashley), Obama left the diner and candy shop for the speech.

“The suits came back and bought some chocolates,” Ray said, referring to some Secret Service personnel. “They said he really liked the sandwich.”

‘we are witnessing history unfold’

President Obama watched Hosni Mubarak’s speech to Egyptians from the conference room on Air Force One, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs tells the pool. Obama is now headed to the White House for a meeting with his national security team, moments after Mubarak said he wouldn’t step down but that he had given some powers to his vice president.
