A Celebrity in the House

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) just caused a brief stir in the House by strolling onto the chamber floor during a vote to talk to lawmakers/superdelegates.

Obama appeared to speak mostly with Pennsylvania Democrats, including Reps. Paul Kanjorski, Tim Murphy and John Murtha. Obama briefly stopped his conversations to sign autographs for House pages, as reporters jammed up to the doors to sneak a peak at the Demorcratic candidate.

Would Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) have prompted such a reaction? Probably not, but who knows what the West Virginia primary will bring. Clinton and her husband were both campaigning this morning in West Virginia.
