"She held up a navy blue pump"
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080617/ap_on_el_pr/obama_g...

"Obama and Gore were introduced by Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who backed Hillary Rodham Clinton in the primary. She held up a navy blue pump and said, on behalf of women everywhere, that she was proud to say she's supporting Obama."

She held up a shoe? Why?

When we were kids we'd help my grandma collect eggs on Bud Vosen's farm, which was about a 5-minute drive from downtown Madison. He had a pump right next to the barn and we'd always get yelled at for playing with it.

15. still don't see how you run un those things
