Barak Obama on Winning the Democrat Nomination:
We will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth."
"I don’t seek the presidency on the presumption I’m blessed with such personal greatness that history has anointed me to save my country in its hour of need,” “I seek the office with the humility of a man who cannot forget my country saved me.”
.....They might think me an imperfect servant of our country, which I surely am. But I am her servant first, last and always. ….
