“The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States; Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats. But I've got news for them, too. We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don't like federal agents poking around in our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and yes, we’ve got some gay friends in the Red States. There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and patriots who supported the war in Iraq. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.”

Not since John F. Kennedy had the Democrats found such an orator, able to inspire and animate his audience.

Obama became a national sensation virtually overnight, and returned to Illinois to a resounding victory over Keyes that November, 70%-27%. Even before his swearing-in the following January, he was being spoken of as a presidential contender for 2008. In 2005 TIME Magazine included him in a group of 20 of “the world’s most influential people,” while the New Statesman named him as one of ten “people who could change the world.”

In barely two years in the US Senate, Obama has co-sponsored legislation with GOP stalwarts John McCain, his potential 2008 rival, on immigration, and Richard Lugar on nonproliferation; as well as signing on to a host of lesser legislation sponsored by both Democrats and Republicans. Throughout, his national visibility has been increasing exponentially, with a new autobiography, The Audacity of Hope, and an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show." National polls of Democrats show him running second only to Hillary Clinton in their preference for a 2008 presidential candidate.
