OBAMA: Thank you very much. Thank you so much.

A few acknowledgements, if you'll indulge me.

I want to thank Dean Singleton for the kind introduction.

Tom Curley, the president and CEO of the Associated Press.

I understand that Chaplain Barry Black is here. And I hope he's not noticing my absences on the floor of the Senate.

I want to acknowledge some AP reporters who've I spent more time with over the last year than I have my wife, Nedra Pickler, and Beth Fouhy, Tom Rom (ph), Dave Espo, Adabuzo (ph), Chris Wells (ph), Ron Fournier, Jim Kunen (ph), Mike Lowver (ph) and Phil Elliott. I thank you all for your

patience and indulgence with both me and my communications team.
