Script of "Inspiring" (TV)

BARACK OBAMA [v/o]: I'm Barack Obama, and I approve this message.

BARACK OBAMA [in 2004 convention speech]: We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes.

(Text on screen: First Black Elected to Head Harvard's Law Review -- The New York Times, 2-6-90)

ANNOUNCER [v/o]: After college and law school, Barack Obama could have cashed in. Instead he fought for change, working to rebuild an area torn apart by plant closings.


(Text on screen: Harvard University Law School)

LAURENCE TRIBE: It was inspiring, absolutely inspiring to see someone as brilliant as Barack Obama take all of the talent and devote it to making people's lives better.

ANNOUNCER [v/o]: In Illinois, he brought Republicans and Democrats together, cutting taxes for workers and winning health care for children.

(Text on screen: Senator, Republican)

KIRK DILLARD: Senator Obama worked on some of the deepest issues we had and he was successful in a bipartisan way.

(Text on screen: U.S. Senator, D-Missouri)

CLAIRE MCCASKILL: It was hard to get that ethics bill passed. This is a man who knows how to get things done. He understands that we've got to move forward with a different kind of politics.

BARACK OBAMA [in 2004 convention speech]: There is not a liberal America and a conservative America -- there is the United States of America.
