Hello,Chicago.If there is anyone out there who still doubles that American is a place where all things are possible who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time who still questions the power of our democracy ,tonight is our answer.


It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches ,in numbers this nation has never seen by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives ,because they believed that this time must be different ,that their voices could be that difference .It's the answer spoken by young and old rich and poor Democrat and Republican black,white,Hispanic,Asian,Native American,gay,straight,disabled and not disabled.Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.We are,and always will be the United States of America.

我们可以从史无前例的排在学校和教堂周围等待投票的浩荡队伍中获知答案,这些选民排了三四个小时的队,其中有些人甚至是平生第一次参与选举,因为他们相信这次选举是与众不同的,而这次不同则可能来自与他们内心的呼声.无论是青年还是老人,无论是富人还是穷人,无论是民主党人还是共和党人,无论是黑人,白人,还是西班牙裔,亚裔,本土美国人,亦或同性恋、异性恋者,无论是残障人士还是健全人士都将告诉我们答案。美国人民已经 告诉全世界:我们的选举从未有过红州和蓝州之分。我们是,而且永远都是美利坚合众国。

It's the answer that led those who've been told for so long,by so many to be cynical and fearful and doubtful about what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day。It's been a long time coming,but tonight,because of what we did on this date in this election ,at this defining moment change has come to America.


A little bit earlier this evening ,I received an extraordinarily gracious call from Sen.McCain. Sen.McCain fought long and hard in this campaign.And he's fought even longer and harder for the country that he loves .He has endured sacrifices for America,that most of us cannot begin to imagine.We are better off for the service rendered by this brave and selfless leader.I congratulate him.I congratulate Gov.Palin for all that they've achieved,And I look forward to working with them to renew this nation's promise in the months ahead.


I want to thank my partner in this journey,a man who campaigned from his heart and spoke for the men and women he grew up with on the streets of Scranton and rode with on the train home to Delaware ,the vice president-elect of the United States,Joe Biden.


And I would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend for the last 16 years,the rock of our family,the love of my life the nation's next first lady Michelle Obama,Sasha and Malia,I love you both more than you can imagine.And you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the new White House .


I know my grandmother's watching,along with the family that made me who I am.I miss them tonight.I know that my debt to them is beyond measure.To my sister Maya,my sister Alma all my other brothers and sisters ,thank you so much for all the support that you've given me .I am grateful to them .And to my campaign nanager,David Plouffe,the unsung hero of this campaign,who built the best political campaign,I think in the history of the United States of America.To my chief strategist David Axelrod,who's been a partner with me every step of the way.To the best campaign team ever assembled in the history of politics you made this happen,and I am forever grateful,for what you've sacrificed to get it done.But above all ,I will never forget who this victory truly belongs to .It belongs to you ,It belongs to you.


I was never the likeliest candidate for this office.We didn't start with much money or many endorsements.Our campaign was not hatched in the halls of Washington.It began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston.I was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings,they had to give $5、10$ 、 20$ to the cause.It grew strength from the young people who rejectedthe myth of their generation's apathy who left their homes and their families for jobs that offered little pay and less sleep.It drew strength from the not-so-young people who braved the bitter cold and scorching heat to knock on doors of perfect strangers and from the millins of Americans who volunteered and organized and proved that more than two centuries later a government of the people by the people and for the people has not perished from the Earth.This is your victory.


And I know you didn't do this just to win an election.And I know you didn't do it for me.You did it because you understand the enormity of the task that lies ahead 。For even as we celebrate tonight we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime,two wars ,a planet in peril,the worse financial crisis in a century .Even as we stand here tonight ,we know there are brave Americans waking up in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan to risk their lives for us .There are mothers and fathers who will lie awake after the children fall asleep and wonder how they'll make the mortgage or pay their doctor's bills or save enough for their child's college education .There's new energy to harness new jobs to be created ,new schools to build and threats to meet,alliances to repair.The road ahead will be long.Our climb will be steep.We may not get there in one year or even in one term,But,America,I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there.I promise you ,we as a people will get there.

我知道你们所做的一切并不只是为了赢得大选,我也知道你们所做的一切并不是为了我一个人。你们之所以这样做是因为你们明白我们的前路仍然布满荆棘,即使我们今晚在此欢呼雀跃我们也难以漠视未来之挑战的艰巨性将是空前绝后的这一事实:两大战争.一个满目疮痍的星球和一场百年不遇的特大经济危机。即使我们今晚聚会于此庆祝狂欢我们也情不自禁地牵挂着勇敢的美国士兵为了保护我们而冒着生命危险跋涉于伊拉克的沙漠之中,攀援与阿富汗的群山之中。还会有父母在孩子进入梦想之后仍然无法入眠,担心如何偿还按揭月供,担心如何支付医疗费,或者担心如何存够送孩子上大学的钱。我们亟待开发新能源,创造新的工作机会,修建新的学校 ,还要应对众多威胁,修复与许多国家之间的关系。路漫漫其修远兮。前方的山路是陡峭的。我们未必能在一年或者一届任期之内完成任务,但是,美国,我从未像今晚这样满怀希望,我们可以到达目标。我想你们保证,我们会做到的。

There will be setbacks and false starts.There are many who won't agree with every decision or policy I make as president .And we know the government can't solve every problem ,But I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face.I will listen to you,especially when we disagree.And,above all ,I will ask you to join in the work of remaking this nation the only way it's been done in American for 221 years, block by block,brick by brick,calloused hand by calloused hand .What began 21 months ago,in the depths of winter cannot end on this autumn night.This victory alone is not the change we seek.It is only the changce for us to make that change.And that cannto happen if we go back to the way things were.It can't happen without you ,without a new spirit of service,a new spirit of sacrifice,So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism,of responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.Let us remember that,if this financial crisis taught us anything.It's that we cannot have a thriving Wall Street while Main Street suffers.In this country,we rise or fall as one nation,as one people.Let's resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long .Let's remember that it was a man from this state,who first carried the banner of the Republican Party to the White House.A party founded on the values of self-reliance and individual liberty and national unity.Those are values that we all share.And while the Democratic Party has won a great victory tonight,we do so with a measure of humility and determination to heal the divides that have held back our progress.


As Lincoln said to a nation far more divided than ours we are not enemies but friends.Thought passion may have strained,it must not break our bonds of affection.And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn .I may not have won you vote tonight,but I hear your voices.I need your help.And I will be your president,too.


And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores from parliaments and palaces ,to those who are buddled around radios in the forgotten corners of the world .Our stories are singular,but our destiny is shared and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand.To those-to those who would tear the world down:We will defeat you.To those who seek peace and security:We support you.And to all those who have wondered if America's beacon still burns as bright.Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth but from the enduring power of our ideals,democracy,liberty,opportunity and unyielding hope .


That's the true genius of America:that America can change.Our union can be perfected .What we've already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.This election had many first and many stories that will be told for generations.But one that's on my mind tonight's about a woman who cast her ballot in Atlanta.She's a lot like the millions of others who stood in line to make their voice heard in this election except for one thing Ann Nixon Cooper is 106 years old.She was born just a generation past alavery,a time when there were on cars on the road or planes in the sky.When someone like her couldn't vote for two reasons beacause she was a woman and because of the color of her skin.And tonight,I think about all that she's seen throught her century in America,the heartache and the hope ,the struggle and the progress.The tiems we were told that we can't and the people who pressed on with that America creed:Yes we can.At a time when women's voices were silenced and their hopes dismissed,she lived to see them stand up and speak out and reach for the ballot.Yes we can.When there was despair in the dust bowl and despression across the land,she saw a nation conquer fear itself with a New Deal,new jobs,a new sense of common purpose.Yes we can.When the bombs fell on our harbor and tyranny threatened the world ,she was there to witness a generation rise to greatness and a democracy was saved .Yes we can.She was there for the buses in Montgomery the hoses in Birmingham,a bridge in Selma.And a preacher from Atlanta who told a people that "We Shall Overcome." Yes we can.A man touched down on the moon,a wall came down in Berlin,a world was connected by our own science and imagination.And this year,in this election,she touched her finger to a screen,and cast her vote,because after 106 years in America through the best of times and the darkest of hours she knows how America can change.Yes we can.America,we have come so far.We have seen so much,But there is so much more to do. So tonight,let us ask ourselves,if our children should live to see the next century,if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper.What change will they see?What progress will we have made?This is our chance to answer that call.This is our moment.This is our time,to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids,to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace,to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth,that,out of many,we are one that while we breathe,we hope .And where we are met with cynicism and doubts and those who tell us that we can't we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people.Yes,we can.


Thany you.God bless you.And may God bless the United States of America.
