Most Americans agree that it’s time to fix a system that’s been broken for way too long,
The day I'm inaugurated, this country looks at itself differently and the world looks at America differently. If you believe that we've got to heal America and we've got to repair our standing in the world, then I think my supporters believe that I am a messenger who can deliver that message around the world in a way that no other candidate can do.
But so far as countries are concerned, I don't go to a place to see what's there, but who ...- David McCallum

What is our task? To make Britain a fit country for heroes to live in.- David Lloyd George
The federal debt in this country is principally of Republican design.- Daniel Keys Moran
You want to balance the budget in this country? We change the salary structure for Congres...- Daniel Keys Moran
No party has a monopoly on wisdom. No democracy works without compromise. But when Governor Romney and his allies in Congress tell us we can somehow lower our deficit by spending trillions more on new tax breaks for the wealthy – well, you do the math. I refuse to go along with that. And as long as I’m President, I never will.

Barack Obama is a multiracial American politician, though he refers to himself as African-American. He is a 44th President of the United States. He served as Democratic state senator in Illinois, and then as US Senator from that state, before being elected President in 2008.
His father was an economics student from Nairobi, his mother a white American anthropology student when they married. They divorced when Obama was young, and his father returned to Kenya. Obama was raised by his mother until about age 10, when his maternal grandmother in Honolulu took him in. He graduated with honors from Harvard Law School, where he was the first African-American to become Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard Law Review. Obama practiced civil rights law, representing victims of housing and employment discrimination and working on voting rights legislation. He worked as a community organizer in a poor Chicago neighborhood. He has spoken against NAFTA and racial profiling, and for universal health care. From the start, he opposed war in Iraq.
His campaign for Senate received an enormous boost when his opponent, Republican Jack Ryan, withdrew amid embarrassing allegations in his divorce from Star Trek actress Jeri Ryan, that during their marriage he had tried to lure her to attend sex clubs in France. Obama received another boost when he was invited to address the 2004 Democratic Party convention in prime time. In the 2008 general election, Obama became the first African-American elected to the office of President of the United States, defeating Senator John McCain from Arizona by a wide margin.
