  If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer。


  It’s the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hoursand four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference。


  It’s the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay,straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message tothe world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or acollection of red states and blue states. We are, and always will be,the United States of America。


  It’s the answer that led those who’ve been told for so long by so many to becynical 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 abetter day。


  It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this date in this election at this defining moment change has come to America。


  A little bit earlier this evening, I received an extraordinarily gracious call from Sen. McCain。

  Sen.Mc Cain fought long and hard in this campaign. And he’s fought evenlonger and harder for the country that he loves. He has endured sacrifices for America that most of us cannot begin to imagine. We arebetter off for the service rendered by this brave and selfless leader.I congratulate him; I congratulate Gov. Palin for all that they’veachieved. And I look forward to working with them to renew this nation’s promise in the months ahead。


  I want to thank my partner in this journey, a man who campaigned from his heart, and spoke for the men and women he grew upwith on the streets of Scranton and rode with on the train home to Delaware, the vice president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden。


  And I would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend for the last 16 years the rock of our family, the loveof my life, the nation’s next first lady Michelle Obama。


  Sashaand Malia I love you both more than you can imagine. And you have earned the new puppy that’s coming with us to the new White House。


  And while she’s no longer with us, I know my grandmother’s watching, along with the family that made me who I am. I miss them tonight. I know that my debt to them is beyond measure。


  To my sister Maya, my sister Alma, all my other brothers and sisters,thank you so much for all the support that you’ve given me. I am grateful to them。


  Andto my campaign manager, David Plouffe, the unsung hero of thiscampaign, who built the best — the best political campaign, I think, inthe history of the United States of America.To my chief strategistDavid Axelrod who’s been a partner with me every step of the way.To thebest campaign team ever assembled in the history of politics you madethis happen, and I am forever grateful for what you’ve sacrificed toget it done。
