A podium to remember

After Barbara McIlvaine-Smith's press conference on Monday morning, former West Chester borough councilman Bill Scott pulled me aside.

"I have to tell you about this podium," he said.

It turns out that the podium McIlvaine-Smith used was the same one Barack Obama used when he visited Downingtown in April.

Yep. It wasn't exactly for sale, but Bill Scott convinced the Obama people to sell it to him.

"If Obama wins, I want you to do a story on this podium," he said.

OK. I will.

Turns out that back in the day Bill Scott had the chance to swipe a chair JFK sat in. But he didn't and has regretted it ever since.
