President Obama went to Michigan on Wednesday to promote raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. And, everyone knows you can't do that sort of stumping on an empty stomach. So he stopped at Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor; chef Mario Batali has called the deli, which opened in 1982, "my temple of deliciousness."

Here's how the White House pool report recounted the scene:

Both the president and Congressman [Gary] Peters stood in front of a large display case filled with salads, meats, desserts and other goodies. Both men ordered Reuben sandwiches (apparently a specialty) and iced teas, while POTUS also got a side of  "Che Che spin" salad.

The Zingerman reuben is indeed a specialty. And this is what it looks like.

Obama later reminisced about his reuben experience while speaking at the University of Michigan. Here's what he said per the pool report:

"I stopped for two reasons. The first is, the reuben is killer. So I ordered like the small, and it didn't look that small. So I gave half to Valerie Jarrett who's traveling with us. And then after I finished the half, I wanted the halfback. But it was too late. All she had left was the pickle. So I took the pickle."

The lesson? Never share.
