Kudos to Dion on Press Gallery Speech

From the couple of quotes I've seen, he did a half decent job at the Annual Press Gallery Dinner. A couple of the lines...

He made a comment about his famous backpack, and the rumoured knives that may be pointed his way.
"A back-pack can be very useful... it can help protect your back."

He shot back at reporters who have called him the worst Liberal leader in a century.
"Why only in a century? I can't win anything with you guys."

He threw a taunt aimed at Layton, who chose not to speak at the Dinner.
"Who's abstaining now?"

He and Ignatieff pulled a tag-team line when Iggy yelled out from the audience, "We didn't get it done!", to which Dion replied, "This is unfair!"

Looking for the video online, I'd like to see the whole thing for myself. Anyone who finds it, please leave the link in the comments.

    My respect for Dion has gone up a notch. Which means he still has a long ways to go.

    Don't underestimate Dion. His rivals for the Liberal leadership did.
    Dion is determined to be prime minister of Canada. I expect he will be.

    Dion appears to have many good qualities, openness, integrity, intelligence, optimism, generosity, humour... The problems seem to be more with the Liberal Party, in addition to the fact that Dion's style doesn't match well with the press.
