Last night, John McCain and Barack Obama appeared together at the Alfred E Smith Memorial Foundation dinner. They poked fun at each other, and themselves, in a night filled with political celebrities raising money for charity.
Their speeches highlight a great tradition of competitive friendliness as they laugh at, and with, each other. It is hard to believe that the previous evening they were going at each other so intensely.
You definitely want to see each of their performances:
