    i need to discuss the role of corporations in the u.s. government.. their influence, etc. Someone once showed me a video of a president giving a speech where he was told to "wrap it up" by some man in a suit (oil exec. i think they said?) standing next to him. i can't for the life of me remember who the president was or when it was from.. so i'm having no luck finding the video. please if someone knows what i'm talking about, direct me to the video again! thanks a million!

    It was Martin Van Buren, the video was from 1839, but it was his VP Richard M Johnson standing next to him.

    hmm, i dont think that`s the one i`m looking for, this one was from the modern era... it looked about within the last 20 years. maybe it`s a lost cause though, thanks for your help anyway :)

    This looks like a 'homework help' forum to you?

    the site is for political discussion is it not? my paper was about politics. I was just hoping some nice person who happened to have the knowledge I needed would take a second and write me 7 words informing me of the title. I'll be more careful where I ask my questions next time...
