At 2:30, Biden stopped at Antone's Italian Grill, a
slightly swankier-than-average, food booth. "I just ate lunch,"
Biden said before considering the options on the menu and then asking
the staff for their recommendation. They suggested the $6 fried cheese
-- balls of fried cheese, with tomato sauce and pasta. "This is a
meal," he said, after being handed the plate. "Holy mackerel." He
handed over a $20 bill and didn't ask for any change. "Good
recommendation, man," he said after tasting the dish.
Biden posed for a few photos with the food in hand, before passing
it off to an aide. He kept on greeting fairgoers, including a little
boy with a dark blonde buzz cut. "I used to have hair like that. Look
what happened," he said.
One woman, who the pool later identified as Bev Kalmer, of Poland,
Ohio, told the VP: "Welcome to Ohio." His response: "I've been waitin'
all day to be here."
She said "You gotta keep the chair" to him -- a reference to Clint Eastwood's speech last night at the RNC -- and he gave her a kiss right on the lips.
She swooned. Asked if she wants Biden to run for president in 2016,
she told the pool: "I don't know. We've got to keep the chair." She
paused. "You got that?
The invisible chair."http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/biden-does-retail-politics_651332.html
