Hanover, New Hampshire (Remarks as Prepared for Delivery: August 23, 2007)
This election is unlike any we have faced before. The stakes are
higher. And the challenges we face as a nation are greater than at any
time in memory.
We as a nation must choose whether to do what America has always
done in times like these -- change direction and move boldly into the
future for the sake of our children, if not for ourselves, or wander in
the same stale direction we have traveled in our recent past.
The choice we must make is as important as it is clear.
It is a choice between looking back and looking forward.
A choice between the way we've always done it and the way we could do it if we dared.
A choice between corporate power and the power of democracy.
Between a corrupt and corroded system and a government that works for us again.
