Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you, so much.
Thank you, all.
Thank you very, very much.
Well, this isn't exactly the party I'd planned, but I sure like the company.
And I want to start today by saying how grateful I am to all of you,
to everyone who poured your hearts and your hopes into this campaign,
who drove for miles and lined the streets waving homemade signs,
who scrimped and saved to raise money,
who knocked on doors and made calls,
who talked, sometimes argued with your friends and neighbors,
who e-mailed and contributed online,
who invested so much in our common enterprise,
to the moms and dads who came to our events, who lifted their little girls and little boys on their shoulders and whispered in their ears,
"See, you can be anything you want to be."
