Obama on C-SPAN
Barack Obama was on C-SPAN tonight as he gave a rally speech in Manchester, New Hampshire. He spoke for a long while to a smiling crowd about his aspirations to be President and what he hopes to do for America. The following are exerpts from his speech:
"Not talking to leaders we don't like, that doesn't make us look strong; it makes us look arrogant."
"It's time for us to close Guantanamo."
"We are not a country that looks away while innocence is slaughtered in Darfur."
"We are a nation that lifted ourselves from The Depression."
"We are a beacon. That's who we are and who we can be again."
This next line is my favorite:
"I will not be a perfect president, but I will always be honest to you."
"When you walk away, the same old politics wins every time. I can't do this alone."
"Trust in your own sensibility. Make this campaign the vehicle for your hopes."
