Minnie Mouse on the convention floor

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Edgar Baker Phillips wears his Minnie Mouse hat proudly--with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden filling in the ears--as a good luck charm for the Democratic ticket.

"It's a good luck piece," says Phillips, a delegate from the Virgin Islands, from the floor of the Democratic National Convention. "I'm very fond of Obama and Michelle, so I just decided to put a family hat together."
