THE PRESIDENT: Okay, Mary, tell us about yourself.

MS. MORNIN: Okay, I'm a divorced, single mother with three grown,
adult children. I have one child, Robbie, who is mentally
challenged, and I  have two daughters.... I work three jobs and
I feel like I contribute.

THE PRESIDENT: You work three jobs?

MS. MORNIN: Three jobs, yes.

THE PRESIDENT: Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic
that you're doing that. (Applause.) Get any sleep? (Laughter.)
