Jesse Jackson Speaks!

So, out here in Denver this week, in the middle of everything else we're doing, I've been recording a series of panels hosted by The Nation magazine for podcasts on their site.  Today there was a surprise guest right before the panel, Jesse Jackson.  That's the Reverend Jesse Jackson, or Jesse Jackson, Sr., not to be confused with his son the Congressman.  From what I've heard at this point, he hasn't been too visible during the DNC yet this week, and today's the last day.  Word is he flew in from DC this morning. Guess he wasn't invited to speak at the convention, after his unfortunate off-camera remarks became headlines in July.

Wondering what he had to say here today?  I'll spare you some suspense; he's supporting Obama!  To find out more, you'll have to listen.  Click below:
