Interesting and amusing

So while I was looking for more football videos, I came across video of the past commencement speakers at my old alma mater, Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

I give you the speaker of 2006, Senator Barack Obama

I highly recommend you fast forward to 19:08 to hear the bit he says about Wall Street and War almost two years ago.  It's remarkably poignant and could be a campaign speech but it's not.

Also, the commencement speaker of 2005, Senator John McCain

If anyone is interested, the commencement speaker the year I graduated was Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and she was BORING.
