Care to predict Obama's memes for tonight?
- John McCain will undoubtedly use images of this very event against us. That's because when he sees tens of thousands of Americans eager to participate, eager to pick up the tools to build a better America for themselves and for their neighbors, John McCain sees celebrity. As I look out tonight, I see democracy.
- The McCain campaign's first reaction to my selecting Joe Biden as my running mate was to air an ad that shows Joe disagreeing with me during the long primary season. I truly thank Senator McCain for that. I'm proud that I can talk with people with whom I disagree, that I can listen to them, that I can work with them. Why, John, I even look forward to working with you. You are going to be a very important senator in the Obama administration, and we're going to count on your support in passing a bi-partisan agenda to rebuild this country.
- There are 75,000 of us here tonight, tens of millions at home watching on TV, and millions and millions online, watching on the Internet, and undoubtedly chatting with friends and strangers around the world. Now, a few weeks ago, a senior aide to John McCain said that Senator McCain "is aware of the Internet." That is totally acceptable for a candidate for the presidency of the United States...in 1992. But it simply is not acceptable for a country that wants to regain its leadership in the 21st century.
