Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
We are going to be live-blogging the ServiceNation summit featuring Barack Obama and John McCain. We've got a ways to go before the main event, but in fine Columbia fashion, the youngsters are already making a day of it. Here, they listen to spoken word poetry.
