Fun article today in the NY Times about how a president can influence
dining preferences and make even a hot dog stand famous.

enjoyable read.


i really liked this, from the comments:

Paul Begala's favorite story of this
ilk occurred when he accompanied
Clinton on a state visit to South America. "Clinton always
makes a point of meeting the common people who serve us at these
events. So we were walking through the kitchen when Clinton stops in
front of a dishwasher and says, 'Miguel! Why aren't you in Peru?' He
met the guy for three seconds in the kitchen at another event years ago
in another country, and he remembered him."
