QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Let me tell you something,” he said. “I would not have begun this campaign if I was not confident that I could win it.” The audience, which had been somewhat sedate, started applauding, louder and louder, and many people rose to their feet to give him a standing ovation. “I’m not running to be vice president,” he declared as the ovation continued. “I’m not running to get my name in the paper.”
He then added a plea: “Don’t talk yourself out of it,” he said. “If we said we can’t do something, we’d still have segregated schools.”
--Barack Obama from the story "Obama, Civil Rights and South Carolina" in the NY Times" political blog, The Caucus.
