Obama and the insurgents from Brooklyn

Lincoln Restler and his campaign manager, Sarah Baker, share a moment with Barack and Michelle Obama.
Obama's campaign was the catalyst for Restler's own scrappy, and narrowly successful, fight to become a Democratic district leader in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn County Democratic organization is still controlled by Assemblyman Vito Lopez who, reportedly, has not been eager to embrace some of the Obama-inspired activists in the borough.
