Obama mocks McCain as an agent of change and a great story from the rally

Here's a great 4-min video ( of Obama mocking McCain's views on the economy and the likelihood that he'll reform Washington.  Best line:
"Yesterday, John Mccain actually said that if he's president, he will take on, and I quote, "the old boy's network in Washington," said Obama. "I'm not making this up. This is somebody who has been in Congress for 26 years, who put seven of the most powerful Washington lobbyists in charge of his campaign. And now he tells us that he's the one who is going to take on the old boy's network. The old boy's network, in the McCain campaign, that's called a staff meeting. Come on."
My friend was in the crowd watching Obama's speech (video above) in Espanola, New Mexico and writes:
When Obama was in the middle of mocking McCain, someone in the crowd fainted from the heat. He stopped mid-sentence, called for the emergency crew, gave instructions to those around the person who fainted and had the crowd clear a path. When the person was taken out on a stretcher, he returned to the crowd and said, "this is what I mean when I say we're all here for each other." The crowd was blown away.
