President-elect Barack Obama: victory speech in Chicago

“It’s the answer that led those who have been told for so long by so many to be cynical, and fearful, and doubtful about what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day.”

– President-elect Barack Obama, Grant Park, Chicago

  1. Salaams Raquel,
    As a political figure, I’m getting a sense of Obama being on a par with John and Bobby Kennedy and MLK, a transformative, once-in-a-lifetime kind of figure. I’m so pleased today. This victory feels so important and so good!

    Have a great day!
