Pres. Obama's edits to HCR speech

The political and news blogosphere was recently ablaze over this amazing photo (view larger size here) snapped by White House official photographer Pete Souza and posted on the White House Flickr site. Back when the outlook on the passage of a health care reform bill seemed bleak, President Obama went on the offensive to persuade members of Congress on its importance. In this photograph, President Obama is reviewing a speech on health care, which he has edited in black ink on September 9, 2009. By the looks of these edits it looks like the president’s phenom speechwriter Jon Favreau needs to reopen that Word document and also consider double spacing in future drafts.
