The First Cookie

of the First Family...and apparently the rest of the country. Sales of the "Obama" cookie are booming at Baby Boomer Cafe.
Want an example of the change Barack Obama is bringing to the country?

Check out cookie sales at Baby Boomers Cafe in Des Moines.

Ever since word got out of the President-elect and his family's fondness for Baby Boomers' chocolate chunk cookies, the small downtown restaurant can't get them out of the oven fast enough.

...Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the Obama campaign, said the Obamas and the campaign staff loved the cookies, and they're fond of Maxfield, too.

"He knew most of us by name, and he cared about how everyone was doing," Vietor said.

Michele Obama would hold meetings in the cafe, and Barack Obama even called Maxfield the day after the caucuses to thank him for helping feed the staff and his family.

"It's just insane. I mean they are the coolest people," said Maxfield. - Chicago Tribune
