"Democratic nominee Barack Obama stops by US Capitol" (video)

raaf123, video (03:22):
Democratic nominee Barack Obama visited the House of Representatives in the middle of a vote. Obama stayed on the floor for almost half an hour visiting with both Democrats and Republicans who looked completely star struck.

Even Speaker Nancy Pelosi left her weekly press briefing and made a beeline for the House floor to say hello. And the Capitol Hill press corps surrounded the House Chamber to catch him on his way out and fire questions about such an unusual move for a presidential candidate, even if he is a senator.

I was just saying hello to everybody, Obama said.
