Outside Whitley's Seed and Farm Supply store, the sweet smell of grain and the sickly odor of fertilizer floated gently over a crowd of about 100 people waiting to see their first national politician, the first big name that anybody could remember stopping in Snead, Ala., for more than a Coke and a decent set of directions. * Yet here was Dan Quayle, former vice president, clearly happy to be in Whitley's parking lot, flashing his famous boyish smile at a baby, an old man, a distant camera.
