Barack Obama in New Orleans, LA


Barack addressed a crowd of 3,500 supporters at Tulane University on Feb 2, 2008

New Orleans represents a central theme of his campaign.. Change does not happen from the top down, but happens from the bottom up. "When we understand we are the United States of America, there is not anything we can do as a country" He uses New Orleans, specifically the Katrina hurricane aftermath, as an example of how America failed its people. "For all of its wealth and power, something is not right in America... a President who only saw America from the window of an airplane rather than down here on the ground with the people..."
