Favorite Barack Obama Moment of 2008: Election Night Victory Speech

CitizenSugar readers apparently care about results! Barack Obama's victory speech won favorite Barack Obama moment of 2008, beating out all the other choices having to do with Obama's path to the White House.

On election night Obama greeted the world from Chicago's Grant Park, exclaiming that:

Change has come to America. If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America 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 your answer.

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.

One of the top write-in choices involved Obama's comments on the yet-to-be-chosen White House puppy. For other top moments of 2008, check out all our highlight coverage!
