"I will not be the perfect president..."
"But I promise you that I will always tell you what I think and where I stand."

"I will always be honest with you about the challenges that we face."

"I will listen to you when we disagree."

"And most importantly I will open the doors of government and ask you to be involved in your democracy again."

This part at the very end of tonight's special just speaks right to me. This is the change that Obama represents. US. All of us, shaping our lives, our futures. THAT is the promise that he has laid out to us.

This is the real deal, folks. Don't let this moment in our history slip away. Take it in your hands and help build something in this country that will make the entire world proud.
