"Yes We Can!"

Senator Barack Obama led his supporters in a rousing chant of "yes we can" after finishing a tight second on the heels of Senator Hillary Clinton in an unexpected 37% to Clinton's 39% showing in the New Hampshire primary. Polls prior to the primary had Obama with a double digit lead over Clinton.

Obama conceded the New Hampshire race to Clinton last night but reminded his supporters, "A few weeks ago, no one could have imagined what we did here tonight. We always knew our climb would be steep."

Obama now heads to South Carolina for the January 26 primary. "We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change," he said.
