24. There was one I really liked, too, and I
went back and it was # 2. He reminds me of a lion sometimes and I'm sure it's just a coincidence that he's a Leo. ;)

8. Someone asked this before, but what is that lapel pin?
And how come it looks similar to the one worn by Secret Service agents?

19. I loved this part from the Indy Star!
At other times, though, the room was almost silent. Such was the case when Obama spoke about one of the last times Indiana's primary election mattered, as it will May 6 when voters choose between Obama and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

It was 1968. Sen. Robert Kennedy was in Indianapolis to campaign for the presidency and had to break the word to an inner-city crowd that the Rev. Martin Luther King had been assassinated.

In a famous speech Kennedy delivered that night, he called for unity and an end to hate.

That, Obama said, is why he's running for president.

"If we can come together there is no challenge we can't face down," Obama said. "I'm here to report the American people are ready for change."
