    Vendors at the Obama Inauguration

     

    BZD Productions spoke with Obama merchandise vendors in the DC area.  Most of the people we spoke with were there just for the inauguration.  Some had come from far away, others saw an opportunity to promote their store, and for most this event allowed people to take their economic shortfalls into their own hands.  By employing themselves, the vendors were able to create a vibrant and cheerful tourist economy.  Without question, those whom we talked with found the Obama administration very friendly, and they didn't hassle anyone nor make them move or stop selling their merchandise.
