Blinged Out For Obama

Washington power women love their Ann Hand rhinestone and pearl Federal-style jewelry, and they seem to dig Sen. Barack Obama, too. We know because Hand's tasteful Georgetown store is running a display in its M Street NW window revealing the daily winner in the presidential rhinestone pin poll. See, Hand designed $45 pins with the names of each candidate, and Washingtonians and tourists are gobbling them up. As you can see in the picture, Obama is the runaway favorite, with 286 sold, followed by Sen. Hillary Clinton at 144 and Sen. John McCain at 80. We'll keep you updated as the numbers change.
