The anti-Costanza

George Costanza: "It's not you, it's me."

Obama: "But I stand before you tonight because all across America something is stirring. What the nay-sayers don't understand is that this election has never been about me. It's been about you."

I love this little trope of "modesty": by voting for Obama, you empower yourself to change the world, and he'll promise to think about you in the White House. Yes we can!
