The Alfred E. Smith Dinner, Starring Comedians McCain And Obama

Kumbayah! At least for one night, the two presidential rivals joined together for a good cause, the 63rd annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. The event, named for the famed 1920’s governor of New York, was a sold-out soiree. It surpassed its goal of raising $2.5 million for Catholic causes and their wonderful work with the poor and needy. The dinner is an election year tradition for candidates, and gives them a chance to show their comedic chops. Both guys were pretty dang hilarious! They roasted each other and themselves, the media, other politicians…and didn’t spare the Clintons. Both guys were QUITE gracious and warm as well, and it was SO good to see the gloves come off, and the white ties put on.

This was likely the last time John McCain and Barack Obama will be in the same room before the election, and they genuinely seemed to be glad to be together. Don’t want to spoil the fun with any recaps, so…enjoy!
