WASHINGTON, DC - May 08: Tourists take pictures of Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., as he arrives at the U.S. Capitol with uncommitted House superdelegates after they emerged from a meeting at the UPS Townhouse, near the House side of Capitol Hill.

This is the first time I remember him being on our floor," said Grace Napolitano, D-Calif., a staunch Clinton supporter. "It's unusual. He's actively soliciting the votes of superdelegates on the floor," said Alyson Schwartz, D-Pa., another Clinton backer. But other Democrats welcomed Obama's visit. "Where else can you meet superdelegates? I don't have a problem with it," said Majority Whip James E. Clyburn, D-S.C., who is uncommitted..(photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
