82-year old woman to be Obama`s VP?



Listen to the lady's question. Do you understand it?

Obama is so impressed that he asks her to be his "running-mate" ie candidate to be Vice President.

He describes her as "fired up" ie excited in her manner and passionate in what she is talking about.

If you had a question to put to him, what would it be?

Well, as you know I don’t still get by with my listening but I think the old lady says that there is only a world and the water supplies are shrinking and we have fear about it. Then, she asks for Obama tells them if he and his wife’s advisers are working about it because it’s a huge problem. (Or something like that).

Montse,

If you can make out what an excited old lady is saying through a cheering crowd, then I think you more than get by.

She said exactly what you say, adding that we all need to get a fair drink (You understood "fear").

She makes a good point but unfortunately little progress seems to have been made to solve the problem.

I STILL DON'T get by with my listening but I think the old lady says that there is ONLY ONE WORLD and the water supplies are shrinking. Then, she ASKS Obama TO TELL them if he and his wife’s advisers are WORKING ON it because it’s a huge problem.
