So the New York Post just ran a piece on how Philly voters view Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. In doing so, they opted for the natural conclusion… Poll people about Philadelphia’s restaurants. Employees of Mrs. K’s Koffee Shop and the Reading Terminal Market got the grill:
“I am one of those rare African-Americans who is supporting Hillary Clinton,” says the 31-year-old Crawford, clearing and stacking dishes at Mrs. K’s Koffee shop in Philly’s historic center. “She’s a little more experienced, a little better prepared, just a little bit sharper and more comprehensive in all the debates.
“I like [Barack] Obama, too, but I think she’s the better commander-in-chief.”
Across town at the teeming Reading Terminal Market, stuffed with food stalls selling cheesesteaks and Italian sausage, 29-year-old parking attendant Bernard Green disagrees.
“Obama’s my choice. He’ll take Philadelphia but it’s going to be a challenge in the suburbs,” says Green.
