The Alfred E. Smith Benefit Dinner

Did any of you see / hear this event? I bet it's up on You Tube by now. How refreshing it is to see the two candidates in this light, instead of what we have had to listen to (spin) on the main stream media outlets, or the fearful tones of the scary e-mails being sent to you and me and everyone.

Both candidates were very, very funny, poking fun at themselves and roasting each other a bit. They were a lot more humble and seemed pretty genuine. I wish more campaigns could be run on humility. Ah, well, I can dream, can't I?

Lightening up the tone of the campaign (any campaign, really) is just what the doctor ordered.

I'm looking for a link to post, but most of them only give a brief snippet, not even half the story, so they lost much by not being more thorough...or purposefully not being more complete and inclusive.

Too bad.

I have the McCain and Obama videos on this post. I also included background information on Al Smith and the memorial dinner.

I've got it here, too, on my 'political blog' :-)

I just loved it. I always enjoy what I've seen of that dinner - and never more than this year.
