  1. The Neil Kinnock thing, with the part about "No it's not because they weren't as smart, it's not because they didn't work as hard. It's because they didn't have a platform upon which to stand." ... Struck me as very similar to Obama's comments that have been in the news:

    "I'm always struck by people who think, `Well, it must be because I was just so smart.' There are a lot of smart people out there. `It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.' Let me tell you something: There are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help."

    Maybe its ingredients are one part Elizabeth Warren, one part Barack Obama, one part Biden/Kinnock?
