Left outside but still glad to see president
BATON ROUGE - About 200 people lined the streets of Old South Baton Rouge to see President Obama's motorcade whiz by Thursday. They were left out in the cold, unable to get a ticket into his town hall meeting at McKinley Senior High.
However, the conditions didn't put a damper on the group's elation to see their icon make an appearance in their neighborhood.
"For him to come here is historical for everybody that's here," said resident Kenneth West.
During the speech, the people gathered around cell phones to watch a livestream of the president's speech.
