Obama: Our path is a hard one, but it leads to a better place

< Previous Page

The address had few of the rhetorical flourishes that marked Obama’s last two convention appearances, but he didn’t abandon the call for "hope" and "change" that were at the center of his first presidential run.

Instead, he put a new twist on the slogan, saying that it is the Americans he meets that have given him hope, a word he used 15 times. And he said it is the people who supported his campaign that deserve the credit for health reform, changes to the federally subsidized student loan and a new policy allowing the children of some undocumented immigrants to gain temporary legal status.

"The election four years ago wasn’t about me. It was about you," Obama said. "My fellow citizens — you were the change."
