(CNN) - Democratic presidential contender Sen. Barack Obama rallied a room full of supporters as he stopped by a debate watching part in Charleston, South Carolina, late Monday night.
“When your name is Barack Obama, you’re already the underdog. So we’re going to have to work extra hard," the Illinois senator told the cheering crowd. They "might not pronounce my name right. They might call me 'Alabama.' They might call me 'Yo, Momma.' But here’s what I know. If everyone here is as energetic and enthusiastic about the prospects for a better America, then we’re not just going to win an election, we’re going to transform the country.”
