    Here's a first look at robot Obama:

    Read the article, gives some cool info about the figure and President Obama's speech. Thoughts anyone?

    Just very, very, very profound happiness ... that we're getting a new version of HoP.

    (absolutely no political thoughts should be interpreted, inferred or cast based upon my giddiness like a school girl!)

    On an unrelated note, anyone think Dick Cheney will show up for the opening?

      Wake me when they add Bob Barr...
      He felt like his life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.

          Interesting bits

          The exhibit will open with the new film, narrated by the actor Morgan Freeman. At a certain point, the Abraham Lincoln figure will rise and speak to the audience, as it always has, but now it will deliver the Gettysburg Address in its entirety.

          “And this is the first time George Washington will have a speaking role,” said Kathy Rogers, a senior show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, the unit that oversees the creative side of the theme parks.

          But the emotional high point is intended to be the introduction of the Obama figure, who will yet again be heard taking the oath.
          I do like Morgan Freeman as a narrator... I have high hopes for the film segment.

              Well, his speeches have always been completely scripted and robotic. I guess Robama won't be much different from telepromobama.

              I keed, I keed.

                  Out of all the new offerings this year (new Space, Stitch show, American Idol, DVCs, etc) THIS is the one I am most excited about. Disney at its patriotic best.

                  I hope it's as good as it seems...

                    It won't be open in time for my next trip in June. I have always loved HoP, I'm with you Yoyo, I'm REALLY looking forward to this.

                    But I guess it will give me a good excuse to go back!

                      Geez, how many times does he have to take the oath? Will there be an animatronic Supreme Court Justice getting it slightly wrong again?

                      Glad they're continuing to have the current president speak, as the rumours had suggested otherwise.

                          "narrated by the actor Morgan Freeman"

                            Looks pretty good! the only differince between this Obama and the real one is that this one won't be needing to rely on a teleprompter :lol: .
