Yes We Can: You Spoke for the Hopes We Hold in Common

Yes We Can: You Spoke for the Hopes We Hold in Common

The Illinois senator gave yet another stirring speech, his knack for which is far superior to the rest of the field on either side.  “A few weeks ago, no one imagined that we’d have accomplished what we did here tonight,” Senator Obama claimed, right after congratulating winner Sen. Clinton.   “For most of this campaign, we were far behind, and we always knew our climb would be steep.  But in record numbers, you came out and spoke up for change.  And with your voices and your votes, you made it clear that at this moment, in this election, there is something happening in America.

Obama reiterated this election season’s common theme of “Change,” but he did it with an inspired finesse and a commanding cadence that recalled Dr. Martin Luther King’s gifted oratory: “There is something happening when people vote not just for the party they belong to but the hopes they hold in common, that whether we are rich or poor; Black or White; Latino or Asian; whether we hail from Iowa or New Hampshire, Nevada or South Carolina, we are ready to take this country in a fundamentally new direction.”
