Sen. Obama speaking at the Al Smith dinner
"I'm also glad to see that Senator Schumer is here, and I also see that he's brought some of his loved ones. Those would be the folks with the cameras and the notebooks in the back of the room."


"Many of you know that I got my name, 'Barack,' from my father. What you may not know is that 'Barack' is actually Swahili for 'That One.' And I got my middle name from somebody who obviously didn't think I'd ever run for President."

They brought the funny!
