Obama's Iowa Victory Speech: "We Are Choosing Hope Over Fear" [VIDEO]

..They said this country was too divided, too disillusioned to ever come together around a common purpose. but on this January night, at this defining moment in history, you have done what the cynics said we couldn't do. You have done what the state of New Hampshire can do in five days. You have done what America can do in this new year, 2008. in lines that stretched around schools and churches in, small towns and in big cities, you came together as Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to stand up and say that we are one nation. We are one people. and our time for change has come! you said the time has come to move beyond the bitterness and pettiness and anger that's consumed Washington. To end the political strategy that's been all about division and instead, make it about addition, to build a coalition for change that stretches through red states and blue states. because that's how we'll win in November, and that's how we'll finally meet the challenges that we face as a nation. We are choosing hope over fear. we're choosing unity over division and sending a powerful message that change is coming to America.
