The Audacity of Hope and Change

On Feb. 10, 2007, Sen. Barack Obama formally announced to a crowd gathered on the lawn of the old State Capital Building in Springfield, Illinois, where Abraham Lincoln began his political career, that he would seek the Democratic nomination for president. “I recognize there is a certain presumptuousness in this — a certain audacity — to this announcement,” he said. “I know that I haven’t spent a lot of time learning the ways of Washington. But I’ve been there long enough to know that the ways of Washington must change.”
