A new America filled with prosperity and justice for the masses is the promise Sen. Barack Obama gave after accepting his party’s nomination for president on the final evening of the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
“With profound gratitude and great humility, I accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States,” Obama told delegates gathered inside Invesco Field from across the country Thursday night.
The delegates were joined by families, senior citizens and teenagers to watch history unfold as Obama of Illinois became the first black man in America to be nominated by a major party to run for the White House.
Millions more watched by television including longtime Democratic leader Michael Wheeler from Los Alamos.
“Sen. Obama gave an amazing speech,” Wheeler said. “It really sets the bar much higher for this campaign because the issues he spoke of will be what the campaign will be all about now,” Wheeler said. “The idea that people can campaign on personal negative attacks is not going to work.”
Wheeler also expressed delight that local delegate Sean Stimmel of White Rock had the opportunity to participate in the four-day event.
