Change - We Can Believe In

These words have resonated across the entire nation creating the 'audacity of hope'. He comes from several continents, races, cultures, and communities. He is the man running for president of the United State of America. Yes, I am talking about Barack Obama. Read more about him here.

I think people like Barack Obama, Bill Clinton are born leaders and natural crowd pullers. His speech - 'A more Perfect Union' in Philadelphia on race and politics was stunning. The charismatic Senator is one of most inspiring public leader in America and a wonderful and talented orator. He is compelling when talking about issues and honest in a unique way. Read about his agenda. Sen. Obama is indeed everywhere.

Hear this funny song on Youtube.

Barack Obama clinched the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. The total number of delegates needed to secure the nomination is 2,118. Right now, Obama has the support of at least 2,159 delegates.

This was his message yest. in St. Paul, Minnesota

"Sixteen months have passed since we first stood together on the steps of the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois. Thousands of miles have been traveled. Millions of voices have been heard. And because of what you said - because you decided that change must come to Washington; because you believed that this year must be different than all the rest; because you chose to listen not to your doubts or your fears but to your greatest hopes and highest aspirations, tonight we mark the end of one historic journey with the beginning of another - a journey that will bring a new and better day to America. Tonight, I can stand before you and say that I will be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States."

The last sentence was received with thunderous applause and rightly deserved.

"This is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past and bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face. Our time to offer a new direction for the country we love.

It's going to take hard work, but thanks to you and millions of other donors and volunteers, no one has ever been more prepared for such a challenge.

Thank you for everything you've done to get us here. Let's keep making history."

I like the slogan on his website where he says: "I am asking you to believe. Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington... I'm asking you to believe in yours"

Our time is now.
