How to be President

You'll find the C-Span link here for President Obama's speech to the House Democratic Caucus and will want to drag the timeline up to about minute 9:11 when Nancy Pelosi is done introducing.

Much of this speech is missing from the record, edited from 21 minutes down to 7 even on the Democratic Party web site. It's worth watching the entirety for the manner in which Obama patiently approaches the purpose of the speech as much as his ability to go off teleprompter, engage the crowd, and be a person as well as our president.

I hope he uses these same points in his weekly address, and speaks them as completely.
