CAMPAIGN '08 / On the Trail / CAMPAIGN DECOR

There's no relief in this men's room

May 08, 2008|Peter Nicholas

The decor in Barack Obama's campaign headquarters in Chicago is largely what you would expect: posters of the candidate, news clippings and pictures of his wife, Michelle.

Then there's the men's room, where the decorations are a bit more . . . utilitarian.

Adorning the restroom walls are large road maps of states with upcoming caucuses and primaries. In prime position, above the urinals, is a map of the next state to hold a Democratic primary -- West Virginia.

Standing at the urinals, an Obama campaign aide told a reporter Wednesday that the maps rotate based on which state is next on the calendar.

Jen Psaki, a spokeswoman for the Obama campaign, said: "We're always focused. We keep our focus on the endgame."
