I just wanted to add a few things:

  1. The transcription of the video is my own, and may not reflect what Mr. Weisman quotes in his blog. I feel my transcription is correct. I didn't leave out anything from the overview of the video, so as to be impartial as possible. I used ellipses to denoted the pauses in Mr. Obama's speech as is appropriate according to AP style.
  2. I didn't include any of the commenatary on the event, "playing the 'race card'" and all that as it is not directly involved in the video of the heckling., which is the only thing I'm focusing on here. I may add it (or you may) at a later date, but for now I didn't wish to.

I think the meticulous transcription is not that relevant. Am I interested in reading Obama's stuttering because someone inaudible is interrupting his speech? No. So I cut that part. Thanks -- 07:23, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
