The Democratic National Convention has been marred by protests that have highlighted the divide in the party between the supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Another divide, however, has delegates priming for a food fight.
The undercard was equally matched: New York pizza versus Philly pretzels, New York bagels against Philly cannolis, and New York pastrami battling a Philly pork sandwich.
After apologizing to Michelle Obama (she has been an outspoken advocate for healthy eating), a panel of judges got the bout underway.
In the end, the New York cheesecake topped Pat’s steak in an upset, but Philly took the composite score victory. Both sides could agree, however, that two better food cities don’t exist in the United States.
Perhaps supporters of Clinton and Sanders could follow that model, too.
