MSNBC’s Graduation Dedication

By now you’ve all probably settled into some kind of summer routine (and here’s to the hope that said routine is every bit as productive/ rewarding/ debauched as you intend it to be).

But here is yet another flashback from MSNBC’s Nightly News to the graduation season of late May. This video montage dedicated to the class of 2008 shows bits from the commencement ceremonies of various schools around the country, but clearly most notable is the clip of Wesleyan’s Taiko drummers and Barack Obama’s address at 1:17:

Other commencement speakers featured in the segment (full addresses of several can be browsed on the site) are such luminaries as Al Gore at Carnegie Mellon, J.K. Rowling at Harvard, Angela Lansbury at UMiami… and George W. Bush at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
