Senator Obama On The Daily Show

Barack Obama was all over the airwaves last night, between his half hour infomercial, midnight rally in Florida with Bill Clinton, and great appearance on The Daily Show, his third to date. (You can see the first here, and the second here.) No topic was off limits, as the Senator spoke about socialism, the Sean Hannity fans who probably wouldn't want to have a beer with him, and the so-called "Bradley effect."

"I think that there's a certain segment of hardcore Sean Hannity fans that probably wouldn't want to go have a beer with me. But I think for the average voter, they're saying to themselves, 'What's all this stuff about? I'm trying to think about hanging onto my house.'"

"I said today that I think they found proof that when I was in kindergarten I shared my toys with some friends, and that's clearly a sign of subversive activity. But the socialism thing doesn't fly too well."
