Obama in the OC

LA Observed's TJ Sullivan was credentialed into President Obama's town hall this afternoon in Costa Mesa and sent along some photos. He'll have more later at his website. In the meantime, feel fortunate if you escaped the traffic snarl in the Century City area this evening from street closures that sure seemed presidential in nature. Yowza it sounded bad. Tomorrow's traffic plan is after the jump.
