Obama at The Jefferson-Jackson Dinner: A Speech That Changed the Campaign

The Speech That Changed the Presidential Campaign

Obama’s speech at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner before thousands of Iowa Democrats presented an intense conclusion to the Democratic dinner. This is the speech that changed the course of the presidential campaign.  “Not answering questions because we’re afraid our answers won’t be popular just won’t do it,” Mr. Obama declared. “Triangulating and poll-driven positions because we’re worried about what Mitt or Rudy might say about us just won’t do it.”  “If we are really serious about winning this election, Democrats, then we can’t live in fear of losing,” he said.  Senator Obama, an Illinois Democrat, said the party succeeded if it led “not by polls but by principle, not by calculation but by conviction.”
