Harrison bristles at the thought that leaders of the political club she helped found 30 years ago now think she is too old and feeble for the rough-and-tumble world of electoral politics. "I'm not helpless," said Harrison, 74. "My thing is I have experience, and they need somebody down there who knows how to work for the city." The Eastside Democratic Organization's decision to leave Harrison off its ticket for the Sept. 10 primary has forced her to run against her colleagues.

"I thought they wanted us to start a job because we do so much government work," said Brennan, an administrative assistant. But the call was the opening act in a days-long planning frenzy for President Barack Obama's tour of the East Baltimore manufacturing facility Friday, when company employees listened to him unveil a $33 billion jobs tax credit plan to the nation.
