Yes, absolutely! It is one of my favorite scenes, because of all the things it implies about what is going to happen 10, 20 years later and nobody there could have any idea except for Palpatine... then you hear his voice... "now they will elect a new Chancellor, a stronger Chancellor". And for a second I think I can hear his voice reaching the lower range that you associate with the Emperor (or Darth Sidious). And what's even more awesome, now that I've seen ROTS, is that I can see the Senate chamber and remember what is going down after Order 66... Palpatine calling Yoda "my little green friend" and then the part of the duel in the Senate itself... chilling!!! I get goosebumps just thinking about it. That is precisely why you should never completely trust *anything* that a politician says.
