Just before 5:00pm (in time to get clips shown on the evening news), Senator Chris Dodd yielded the floor for 10 minutes to the man who beat the tar out of him in the Presidential race, Illinois Senator Barack Obama.
He's not phoning it in, no sir!
"The fact that we're even here... it's an outrage," Obama said. "Millions of jobs could be lost... This is not just a Wall Street crisis, it's an American crisis."
Obama went over his time, and got unanimous consent to be given a couple extra minutes. (Who does he think he is???) "Now more than ever, we are all in this together... at the end of the day, there is no real separation between Wall Street and Main Street."
