Inaugural Whistle Stop Tour

Exerpt from President-Elect Obama today in Philadelphia 

...we should never forget that we are the heirs of that first band of patriots, ordinary men and women who refused to give up when it all seemed so improbable; and who somehow believed that they had the power to make the world anew. That is the spirit we must reclaim today.

...Starting now, let's take up in our own lives the work of perfecting our union.

...Let's build a government that is responsible to the people, and accept our own responsibilities as citizens to hold our government accountable.

...Let's all of us do our part to rebuild this country.

...Let's make sure this election is not the end of what we do to change America, but the beginning.

Join me in this effort. Join one another in this effort. And together, mindful of our proud history, hopeful for the future, let's seek a better world in our time.
