Bartlett and his entourage turn to leave the airport, we hear a voiceover of what is presumably his acceptance speech at the convention. It sounds oddly reminiscent of a certain now-infamous portion of Dean’s Iowa concession speech, but in this case, instead of listing states, Bartlett reminds us that American Revolution was fought by an alliance "of farmers and workers, of cobblers and tinsmiths, of statesmen and students, of mothers and wives, of men and boys." The voiceover perfectly drives home his populist message, as we see him striding triumphantly through O’Hare, surrounded by his staff, receiving the occasional congrats from passersby.
