President-elect Obama stops by Chicago deli

President-elect Barack Obama visited Manny's Cafeteria and Deli in Chicago today to pick up two cherry pies and three corned beef sandwiches -- including one for himself and one for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

President-elect Obama ordered his sandwich on rye bread with mustard.

The President-elect visited the Chicago institution with Valerie Jarrett, an Obama-Biden Transition Team co-chair and White House senior adviser. He spent about 15 minutes shaking hands and taking pictures with people in and around the eatery.
