Hot dogs, live music and children in strollers make CarolinaFest appear like any other street festival. But the prevalence of pins reminds attendees that the daylong event has a political tinge.
So which pin is the most popular? Mark Evans of Hot for Buttons said the "Women for Obama" pin has hands down been the best seller. Barrie Trinkle of Via Delia Buttonista pointed to the pin "Democratic Women are the Life of the Party," saying it was a popular pick.
Theresa Black and Susan Weatherholt of Hernando and Brandon, Mississippi sported their Obama pins proudly. Black and Hernando said they believed Obama has been a firm supporter of women's rights.
