CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Metro) -- A Democratic national convention delegate from Tacoma is rooting for a former Hawaii classmate. According to "The Seattle Times," Dean Ando went to private prep school with President Obama. Ando has photos of the two together as fifth and sixth-graders on his Facebook page. He says Obama wasn't interested in politics then, but was 'very smart." Ando is now on the state Democratic Party Central Committee. Copyright © 2012 Metro Networks Inc.
