    Whats funny is why would Obama give a speech to those who support his health care reform? Preaching to the chior so to speak. If he really wanted to be effective why not give a speech to those that disagree with what he is proposing and attempt to convince them to support it?

      Hi, Dan;

      The speech was given to the doctors, but the target audience was the people watching on TV. The only reason there was an audience at all was so Obama could give the impression that many doctors support his plans, to the much wider audience on TV. I doubt he fooled anybody.

      In actuality, the group assembled there were mostly doctors working in fields that are heavily funded by the government. Generally, those weren’t home-town G.P.’s.
