The Obama Administration

"The change we need isn't just about new programs and policies. It's about a new politics - a politics that calls on our better angels instead of encouraging our worst instincts; one that reminds us of the obligations we have to ourselves and one another."

The Obama Administration will look to the challenges we face as a nation with the same spirit of determination and optimism that characterized President-elect Obama’s campaign. From the beginning, the campaign was about a nation tired of the same old politics, a nation eager to stand up and lead the world in a new direction. It was a campaign calling for change – to restore prosperity, create jobs, and cut taxes for the middle-class; to make health care and college more affordable; to invest in new energy sources, set a timetable to end the war in Iraq responsibly, and restore our standing in the world.

While the Obama Administration will lead on all of these initiatives, we each must do our part to renew America’s promise.

"It is that American spirit - that American promise - that pushes us forward even when the path is uncertain; that binds us together in spite of our differences; that makes us fix our eye not on what is seen, but what is unseen, that better place around the bend."
