Obama For President?
Illinois Senator Brack Obama announced his candidacy for president Saturday before the Old State Capitol.
The New York Times said that Obama presented himself as an agent of change and declared that he could rid the government of cynicism, corruption and "a smallness of our politics."
Obama has named Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as his main opponent in the race for presidency. Clinton is said to maintain several qualities that Democrats fear Obama lacks, such as experience, a "command of policy and political history", and, of course, a huge group of advisers and fund-raisers.
