REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT IN "TRIBUTE TO THE PRESIDENT" RECEPTION HOSTED BY GOVERNOR DAVIS OF CALIFORNIA Paramount Studios Los Angeles, California
11:18 P.M. PDT
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.)
