Essential Estrogen: Business as Usual? Not His Administration, Obama Says

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

A desire for change is what Democratic presidential hopeful Sen.
Barack Obama says he's heard loud and clear while on the campaign
trail in Iowa -- and exactly what he's prepared to provide to the
American people. "I've had a terrific chance to travel -- not just in
the main urban areas like Des Moines and Cedar Rapids -- but also the
smaller, rural areas around the state," he said today following public
remarks at Roosevelt Middle School in Cedar Rapids. "What's
interesting is just how uniformly people are hungry for change." Obama
said he's been impressed with the level of the discourse with
residents throughout the state as well as with citizens across the
nation. "What's also been really interesting is that even the most
remote areas, people are very concerned about foreign policy," he
said. "I think people recognize that we are at one of those crossroads
where the decisions we make over the next five years are going to have
such a profound effect on our long term security and our relationship
with the world. I'm really pleased to see just how engaged people are."
