Sen. Barack Obama portions of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s planned upcoming speech SEE RELATED:

“We agree with Senator Clinton that there is a choice in this campaign. It’s a choice between a candidate who’s taken more money from Washington lobbyists than any Democrat or Republican running for President and a candidate who hasn’t taken a dime of their money in this election. \ \ \ It’s a choice between a candidate who’s called NAFTA a victory and supported permanent trade with China and a candidate who will end tax breaks for companies who ship our jobs overseas and give them to companies who create good jobs in America. \ \ \ It’s a choice between a candidate who voted for the war in Iraq and one who opposed it from the very beginning. It’s a choice between going into this election with Republicans and Independents already united against us, or going against John McCain with a campaign that has already united Americans of all parties around a common purpose. \ \ \ The choice in this election is between more of the same divisive, say-or-do-anything-to-win politics of the past and real change that we can believe in. That’s the change that Barack Obama offers, and that’s why more and more voters across America are choosing him as our next President.”
