They have traded barbs throughout the presidential campaign, but last night, the two candidates for the US presidency - John McCain and Barack Obama -  put that aside and gave humorous speeches at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in New York.

Below are the YouTube clips of their speeches, both of which are very funny:

Obama

They were so funny! I was really suprised. And it is was great to see them making fun of eachother and themselves, it seemed like nothing was out of bounds! Age, race, all that stuff about the messiah! It was edgy material!

Thanks for pointing that out, I really enjoyed it.
