     THE PRESIDENT:  First of all, thank you.  Let me say on behalf of my
family, we're honored to have this Oscar.  (Laughter.)

     I want to thank the Governor and Sharon for welcoming us to
California, for the wonderful reception that we've had, for the great
convention we've had.  (Applause.)  And I want to say to all of you -- I
don't know if any of you saw my "Home Alone" video that I did -- do you
remember that?  (Applause.)  Well, in this "Home Alone" video I was talking
to myself in the mirror and I had Kevin Spacey's Oscar.  And he was
ungracious enough to come take it away from me, just because he won it and
I didn't.  So now that I have one of my very own, I'll be able to lord it
over him.

     We have had a wonderful time.  I want to thank the delegates who are
here from every single state.  (Applause.)  From the places where we
started to the places where we ended, it's been a great ride.  I want to
thank you for being so good to Hillary tonight.  (Applause.)  And you just
remember what I told you.  We had a good run tonight because we've had a
good eight years.  But the best way to validate all the work we've done is
to win again and keep it going.

     God bless you.  Thank you.  (Applause.)

END                                                                11:20
