Obama accepts a gift from a 95 yr old supporter, Charles Edwards, and uses it to put Congress on notice not to get in the way of his healthcare plan. Roanoke's WSLS News caught the video of this lighthearted moment yesterday in front of a packed gym in Bristol VA:
During the Question and Answer session, Obama met a 95-year-old African American man, whose daughter told Obama that he had waited his whole life for this moment.
The man wobbled slowly to the stage and presented Obama with a maple wood walking stick as a gift.
The presumptive democratic nominee, clearly feeling his oats, took the stick and said, "If members of Congress don't pass my health care bill - I'll whoop 'em, I'll whoop 'em. That's right, you better not mess with me, and I'll have that stick."
