Barack Obama, 2008

America, this is our moment. This is our time.

...I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth. 

Timothy Geithner, yesterday"it's going to feel very hard, harder than anything they've experienced in their lifetime now, for a long time to come."
