I’ll be a President who finally brings Democrats and Republicans together to make health care affordable for every single American. We will put a college education within reach of anyone who wants to go, and instead of just talking about how great our teachers are, we will reward them for their greatness, with more pay and with better support. And we will harness the ingenuity of farmers and scientists and entrepreneurs to free this nation from the tyranny of oil once and for all.
BARACK OBAMA, speech, Feb. 5, 2008
“Replacing the tyranny of oil: the tyranny of ME.”
