• Clapping for Change by Mark Bryan Makela

Clapping along with supporters, Barack Obama campaigns at the Paoli train station in Pennsylvania on April 19, 2008, the weekend before the Pennsylvania Democratic Presidential Primary Election, where Mr. Obama was locked in a fierce contest with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. The trip across Southeastern Pennsylvania was the first run on a train of the 2008 race, with Mr. Obama heading from Philadelphia to Harrisburg planning many rallies in between.
