Sen. Barack Obama campaigned in New Hampshire after Labor Day.
(CNN) - Continuing his Labor Day campaign theme of change, Sen. Barack Obama spoke to a small gathering of people in Manchester, New Hampshire Tuesday morning to unveil his plan for transparency in government. Obama told those assembled for the roundtable, “We need a system that works for the American people's interest and not for the special interest.”
One of the main points of his plan focused on creating a centralized database that would give Americans access to lobbying information such as who is lobbying members of Congress, which lobbyist have ethics violations and where lobbyist money is going.
Obama added, “I really believe that when it comes to what's wrong with this country, the American people aren't the problem. The American people are the answer. They want to trust in our government again. We just need a government that will trust in us.”
Obama also addressed recent comments made by Sen. Hillary Clinton suggesting that he lacked the experience to be president.
“I know that some people like to count experience as the amount of time that you've spent in Washington, and I acknowledge that I might not always have the kind of experience that Washington likes, but I believe that I have the experience that Washington and America needs.”
