So Where Else Would Obama Go for his Pizza?

Barack Obama PizzaSo we've heard about Sen. Barack Obama's stands on health care, education and Iraq. But what does the guy like on his pizza? If his campaign stop at American Dream Pizza in Corvallis is any sign, looks like he prefers vegetarian pizzas.

"There's something very metaphorical going on here," Obama said as he made his way through the crowd inside American Dream Pizza on Second Street.

Obama -- who started the day with a morning rally in Portland, then moved on to Salem for a mid-day campaign event and was to speak at another rally in Eugene at 9 p.m. Friday -- arrived at American Dream Pizza in Corvallis at 5:30 p.m. and stayed for about 45 minutes.

The candidate shook hands, chatted with diners, posed for pictures, sampled two kinds of pizza -- margherita and cheese -- and autographed a pizza box for the restaurant's beaming owner, Mark O'Brien.

O'Brien said he was "very surprised" when he got a call about 90 minutes prior to Obama's arrival and learned that the candidate would be stopping in.

"But we're American Dream. I guess this would be the obvious place for him to stop," O'Brien said.
