What the nay-sayers don't understand is that this election has never been about me. It's been about you.

For eighteen long months, you have stood up, one by one, and said enough to the politics of the past. You understand that in this election, the greatest risk we can take is to try the same old politics with the same old players and expect a different result. You have shown what history teaches us - that at defining moments like this one, the change we need doesn't come from Washington. Change comes to Washington. Change happens because the American people demand it - because they rise up and insist on new ideas and new leadership, a new politics for a new time.


2008 victory Speech

This victory alone is not the change we seek it is only the chance for us to make that change. And that cannot happen if we go back to the way things were. It cannot happen without you.


Americans voted for Obama but they didn't vote for "new ideas and new leadership, a new politics for a new time" in Congress. They brought most of the same old cronies back.

Obama said time and again, he wasn't the change. That the change had to come from the people. He knew Congress had to change but that he alone could not change Congress - it had to come from the people.

And he said that stuff all long - he didn't wait until the end of his campaign to spring it on people.

The American people didn't deliver.
