This is a popular and highly rated video of Senator Obama speaking on YouTube about a range of topics. The first 15 minutes of the video is Senator Obama’s prepared remarks about his administration’s priorities related to innovation if he is elected President. The Senator’s formal speech does a good job of outlining his views on subjects such as the open internet, broadband for everyone, technical literacy, federal funding of R&D, antitrust laws, H-1B visas and other issues. The remainder of the hour long video is a Q&A by Eric Schmidt, Google CEO and questions from Google employees on a wide variety of issues not related to innovation.
