Many of the staffers, about 12 in all, had worked for Obama in the White House, and most of them knew Reeves; people stepped out of their offices to greet her. He walked up to Reeves with his arms outstretched and asked about her family, and she sheepishly stepped in for a hug.
And a bunch of them, you know, a number of them met on the campaign or at the White House. But nobody yet has named a child Barack. He offered us a seat on the couch, and he sank into the chair at the end. He was in jeans and a light blue shirt unbuttoned at the top. He put his feet up, crossed his legs at the ankles. The letter had stood as a reminder to him of his commitment to healthcare reform.
And folks in the office came from different backgrounds. We had our volunteer workforce. And there were some old people in the mix, too. Whether that was on a campaign or in the office. And a lot of them felt alone in that hardship.
You know, after a tornado or a flood or a shooting. And what was clear was that my presence there signified to those families that they were important. Their loved ones were important.

In a video posting, announcing his candidacy for President of the United States 16 January There are countless reasons the American people have lost confidence in the President's Iraq policy, but chief among them has been the administration's insistence on making promises and assurances about progress and victory that do not appear to be grounded in the reality of the facts.
We have been told we would be greeted as liberators.
We have been promised the insurgency was in its last throes. We have been assured again and again that we are making progress and that the Iraqis would soon stand up so we could stand down and our brave sons and daughters could start coming home. We have been asked to wait, we have been asked to be patient, and we have been asked to give the President and the new Iraqi Government 6 more months, and then 6 more months after that, and then 6 more months after that.President Obama in Ohio: Fired Up and Ready to Fight

But at a certain point, we have to draw a line. At a certain point, the American people have to have some confidence that we are not simply going down this blind alley in perpetuity.
When it comes to the war in Iraq, the time for promises and assurances, for waiting and patience is over. Too many lives have been lost and too many billions have been spent for us to trust the President on another tried-and-failed policy, opposed by generals and experts, opposed by Democrats and Republicans, opposed by Americans and even the Iraqis themselves.
It is time to change our policy. It is time to give Iraqis their country back, and it is time to refocus America's effort on the wider struggle against terror yet to be won. Our troops have done all that we have asked them to do and more. But no amount of American soldiers can solve the political differences at the heart of somebody else's civil war, nor settle the grievances in the hearts of the combatants.

It is my firm belief that the responsible course of action - for the United States, for Iraq, and for our troops - is to oppose this reckless escalation and to pursue a new policy.

Announcement of Candidacy for President of the United States. We are distracted from our real failures and told to blame the other party, or gay people, or immigrants, and as people have looked away in frustration and disillusionment, we know who has filled the void. The cynics, the lobbyists, the special interests, who've turned government into only a game they can afford to play.
They write the checks while you get stuck with the bill. They get access while you get to write a letter. But the Israelis must trust that they have a true Palestinian partner for peace.
