Alfred E. Smith who was the first Catholic Presidential Candidate in the United States died in 1944 and since this year the Presidential Candidates of the United States meet with Roman Catholic Cardinals at a dinner called Alfred E. Smith memorial Foundation Dinner. The Catholic elite populate this dinner and here the Cardinal from New York gloats as his next political slaves eat with him as he sits right in the middle of them. In the 2000 Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner George Bush said,

“This is an impressive crowd; the haves and the have mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base.” 0:38-0:49
