And there he is,

President-elect,

Barack Obama,

his wife Michelle,

and daughters Sasha and Malia.

Hello, Chicago!

Is there...

Is anyone out there...

...who still doubts

that America is a place

where all things are possible ?

Who still wonders if the dream

of our fonders

is alive in our son ?

Who still questions

the power of our Democracy?

Tonight is your answer.

It's the answer told by lines

that stretched around

schools ans churches

in numbers that this nation

has never seen,

by people who waited

three hours, four hours.

Many for the first time in their lives.

Because they believed that this time

must be different.

That their voices

could be that difference.

It's the answer spoken

by young and old,

rich and poor,

Democrat and Republican,

black, white,

hispanic, asian,

Native American, gay, straight,

disabled and not disabled,

Americans who sent

a message to the world,

that we have never been

just a collection of individuals

or a collection of red states

and blue states.

We are and always will be

the United States of America.

It's the answer

that led those

who've been told for so long

by so many to be cynical, and fearfull,

and doubtful

about what we can achieve

to put their hands

on the Arc of History

and bend it once more

toward the hope of a better day.

It's been a long time coming.

But tonight,

because of what we did

on this day,

in this election,

at this defining moment,

changes come to America.

A little bit earlier this evening,

I received an extraordinarily

gracious call

from Senator McCain.

Senator McCain fought long and hard

in this campaign,

and he's fought even longer and harder

for the country that he loves.

He has endured sacrifices

for America,

that most of us

can not begin to imagine.

We are better off

for the service rendered

by this brave and selfless leader.

I congratulate him,

I congratulate Governor Palin,

for all that they've achieved

and I look forward to working with them.

To renew this nation's promise

in the months ahead.

I want to thank

my partner in this journey,

a man who campaigned from his heart,

and spoke for the men and women

he grew up with

on the streets of Scranton

and rode with on the train home

to Delaware.

The vice President-elect

of the United States,

Joe Biden.

And I would not be standing here

tonight without the unyielding support

of my best friend,

for the last sixteen years,

the rock of our family,

the love of my life,

the nation's next first lady,

Michelle Obama.

Sasha and Malia,

I love you both

more than you can imagine.

And you have earned

the new poppy that is coming with us

to the White House.

And while she's no longer with us,

I know my grandmother's watching.

Along, with the family

that made me who I am.

I miss them tonight.

I know that my debt to them

is beyond measure.

To my sister Maya,

my sister Alma,

all my other brothers and sisters...

Thank you so much for all the support

you've given me.

I'm grateful to them.

To my campaign manager, David Plouffe...

The unsung heroe of this campaign

who built the best...

...the best political campaign, I think,

in the history of

the United States of America.

To my chief strategist, David Axelrod,

who has been a partner with me

every step of the way.

To the best campaign team ever,

ever assembled

in the history of politics,

you made this happen,

and I'm forever grateful,

for what you sacrificed

to get it done.

But above all,

I will never forget

who this victory truly belongs to.
