Quotes From the 2008 Candidates
Quotes from the Democratic and Republican candidates on Tuesday.
"Today the change we seek swept through the Chesapeake and over the Potomac. We won the state of Maryland. We won the commonwealth of Virginia. And though we won in Washington, D.C., this movement won't stop until there's change in Washington, D.C., and tonight we're on our way. Tonight we're on our way, but we know how much further we have to go. We know it takes more than one night or even one election to overcome decades of money and the influence, the bitter partisanship and petty bickering that shut you out, let you down, told you to settle." _ Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, speaking at a rally in Madison, Wis.
"Well, I can't think of any better place to start our campaign for Texas than right here in El Paso. And I am honored to be an honorary Miner. And we're going to sweep across Texas in the next three weeks, bringing our message about what we need in America, the kind of president that will be required on day one to be commander in chief to turn the economy around. I'm tested. I'm ready. Let's make it happen." _ New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking at a rally in El Paso, Texas.
"We do not yet know for certain who will have the honor of being the Democratic Party's nominee for president. But we know where either of their candidates will lead this country, and we dare not let them. They will promise a new approach to governing but offer only the policies of a political orthodoxy that insists the solution to government's failures is to simply make it bigger." _ Arizona Sen. John McCain, speaking to supporters in Alexandria, Va.
"So we march on. Every time we win, we're ecstatic. When we don't win, we're disappointed, but we're not knocked out, and we continue to believe that every day provides a new opportunity for us to keep the message going, show the contrast." _ Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, speaking in Little Rock.
