August 21, 2007: Obama presidency a ‘stretch’ for voters (AP)

  • “I think it’s fair that I’ve got to earn the confidence of the electorate,” Obama told AP. “What we’ve tried to do over the course of the last six months is make the case for change, and the American people are desperately hungry for change. The next four or five or six months will involve me making the case that not only am I the most effective change agent but I’m also equipped with the experience and judgment to be the next commander in chief.”
