Mark Purdy sent me this link to President-elect Obama's commencement address to the Northwestern University's class of 2006.
FYI: In 2005, the commencement speaker was John McCain. About three minutes in, Obama mentions the fact that a Northwestern student paper columnist wrote that she hopes that in his speech, he is "better than John McCain."
But listen to the themes. That's where you will find the real foreshadowing. Almost half an hour, but well worth it. bk
