Obama's Day

YES. WE CAN. This is our moment. This is our time ... that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism and doubt, and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond ... Yes, we can.

CHANGE. It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America.

LEADERSHIP. To all those watching tonight from beyond our shores ... our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand.

I HEAR YOU. To those Americans whose support I have yet to earn ... I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, I need your help, and I will be your president too.

UNITY. Let us summon a new spirit of patrotism, of service and responsibility, where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves, but each other ... in this country, we rise and fall as a nation, and one people.

VICTOR. Above all, I will never forget who this victory truly belongs to - it belongs to you.

CHALLENGES. The road ahead will be long. our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or one term, but America, I have never been more hopeful that I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you - we as a people will get there.

Hope this is not just rhetoric. But I am also wondering what can Obama do what Bush failed to do?

We have witnessed many instances of rhetoric from politicians all over the world. Yes we need change but not necessarily the change will be for the better. Simply because there is no one better.

Hi Kin Lian,

I followed & watched the election on Fox and Sky News.... until 4Nov victory speech. If there's anyone who can, certainly he can carry that great nation out of her crisis. His is an exceptional and inspirational leader.

Hey! my best regards and take care.

I strongly recommend all those who wish to get to know better of BARACK OBAMA should read his two books"AUDACITY OF HOPE" AND " DREAMS OF MY FATHER"

As a man in his prime of 47 he has much to contribute no only his own country US but the World.

He is the man of hope and we also wish he will bring a change for better to this world.
