See that's why Barack's running: to end the war in Iraq responsibly - to build an economy that lifts every family to make sure health care is available for every American - and to make sure that every child in this nation has a world-class education all the way from preschool to college.
I've seen firsthand that being president doesn't change who you are. It reveals who you are.
I'm not asking any of you to make drastic changes to every single one of your recipes or to totally change the way you do business. But what I am asking is that you consider reformulating your menu in pragmatic and incremental ways to create healthier versions of the foods that we all love.

And I love that even in the toughest moments when we're all sweating it - when we're worried that the bill won't pass and it seems like all is lost - Barack never lets himself get distracted by the chatter and the noise.
