That's "shoo-in"; not shoe-in. As in what you say when you're trying to, for instance, get a stray cat away from your door, or maybe a raccoon off your back porch: Shoo!
I'm confused. Isn't Obama from the Midwest? Paul Ryan? That's pretty "center stage."
True, but that is just because the state line crosses the Appalachians. By the time you hit Pittsburgh from Philly, you are definitely in the midwest. You have to pass through the South first, of course.
Sounds like a great read... but Pennsylvania is not considered to be part of the midwest!
