Here are videos from Fox News and the Rachel Maddow show of Obama and McCain's speeches at the Alfred E. Smith dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NY.

Highlights from Obama: You can see the Russian Tea Room from the doorstep of the Waldorf Astoria; he got his middle name from someone who never thought he'd run for president; Barack is Swahili for "that one."
