Translated Script of "Talking To Me" -- English (Radio)
BARACK OBAMA: There is not a liberal America and a conservative America; there is the United States of America. ANNOUNCER: Barack Obama is talking to me. He's faced many of the same challenges that we've faced in my family. His parents weren't rich, but through hard work, he earned a scholarship and found his way -- graduating from Harvard Law School.
And instead of accepting job offers that paid a lot of money, Obama decided to work with churches, giving a helping hand to those less fortunate in his community.
BARACK OBAMA: In this election, in this moment, let us reach for what we know is possible.
ANNOUNCER: Obama is talking to me -- about the opportunity to go to college and about ensuring my parents and grandparents have the health care they need.
That's why I'm talking to others -- my parents, my uncles, and my friends -- because politics isn't just for those who like to fight, it's for those who want to build a better future.
Obama is talking to me, and he's talking to you, too.
BARACK OBAMA: I'm Barack Obama, and I approve this message.
ANNOUNCER: Paid for by Obama for America.
