Found in LA Van Nuys: Barack Obama on a Resin Chair

Turns out "Economic Roundtable" talks really happen at round tables. They also happen in the backyard of a campaign supporter in Van Nuys, in the case of this week's visit from Democratic Presidential nominee-hopeful Barack Obama. The Illinois Senator held the discussion a the home of Mimi Vitello, and was apparently not daunted by the large rake that rested against the wall behind him. LAist Featured Photos pool contributor Jonathan Alcorn (aka Sundogg) captured this amazing shot of Obama's day in the San Fernando Valley, where he has been campaigning vigorously of late, with the local primary just a couple of weeks away.
