Barack Obama to America: Yes we can!

Borrowing from the 2006 immigration reform protestors’ chant “Sí se puede,” Barack Obama tonight launched the next phase of his campaign with the mantra “Yes we can.” Not original, but a desperately needed change from “Change.”

Losing to Hillary Clinton in a tight Democratic primary in New Hampshire, Obama was still confident and his words inspiring. CNN noted the plan had been for him to take the stage to the strains of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.” A bit of understandable overconfidence. And a mistake that certainly won’t be repeated.

Now the fight really begins.
