RALEIGH, North Carolina (CNN) – Barack Obama celebrated a clear victory in North Carolina's Democratic primary Tuesday, congratulating Hillary Clinton for her apparent win in Indiana while dismissing pundits who say the Democrats are hopelessly divided between the two.
"This fall, we intend to march forward as one Democratic party, united by a common vision for this country, because we all agree at this defining moment in our history - a moment when we are facing two wars, an economy in turmoil, a planet in peril, a dream that feels like it's slipping away for too many americans. We can't afford to give John McCain the chance to serve out George Bush's third term," the Illinois senator told supporters. "We need change in America."

"Hillary Clinton is the voice of change, not you obama…" You must be referring to Hillary's stance on NAFTA. Better yet...I'd call her "vocie of lies". Good job North Carolina!!
I'm in NC and I think we need a woman to straighten out the mess all these male Presidents have made over the years..I didn't vote for Obama although he is a good speaker...how can anyone tell who is telling the truth?
why do the clinton supporters hide behind stupid names?
and why do they lie so much,even to themselves
truth is some of them are secretly voting and donating to obama
they cant admit it for some reason i dont know
Up in delegates... and oh my!!! Look at that popular vote lead!
Yep, an ol' fashion butt whoopin'...
that speech almost brought me to tears.....and im not even american
OBAMA REPRESENTS CHANGE THAT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR GOD BLESS OBAMA AND GOD BLESS AMERICA
Thank you North Carolina. Thank you for believing that we can be united to solve problems in a different way. I love you!!! Yes we can, Yes we will and Yes we must!!!! There is nothing about Hillary that says change. She is the voice of a politician who will say and do anything to win. America can see through her!!! Yes we can.
Stunning speech. Heartfelt and authentic.
I really hope Obama supporters can be respectful. Obama was very clear – we must unite as a party, regardless of who the nominee is. We must not let McCain win the election this fall. We need a Democrat in office. Though I am confident Obama will win the nomination, I am prepared to vote for Clinton if she wins it...please, everyone...see the bigger picture here.
When is Obama going to stop with the tales about his "poor" childhood? He keeps talking about his mother being on food stamps "for a while." Truth is, as he himself said in his first book, she was working on her Ph.D. at the time (and didn't want to work while writing her 800-page dissertation for her doctorate in anthropology). AND he was living with his grandparents at the time - while his grandmother was a VP at the Bank of Hawaii and he was attending a prestigious prep school in Honolulu.
Start telling the truth or at least quit with the front of somehow being the only "honest" politician!!!!
I can see from the blogs that there are still people who are judging this man by the color of skin.
How dumb you people are.
You better listen to the facts.
YAY OBAMA! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
No Chicago style politics...
Vote for Hillary!!
Say goodnight, Hillary.
We need people to stop voting based on race...
Obama received 91% & 93% of the black vote in NC and Ind...respectively
Hillary is not the voice of change... now is the time for a change!!!
Obama way to go!!! Thanks Tarheels!
Hillary Clinton it's time for a change.
Don't forget we got change under the Bush administration. It wasn't good but it was change. So don't always hope for change, it may not be all you expect it to be.
HE WON IN NORTH CAROLINA DUE TO HIS BLACK SUPPORT, PERIOD. BALCK PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR HIM JUST BECAUSE HE SHARES THEIR SKIN COLOR. THE PROBLEM IS THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH BLACKS FOR HIM TO WIN THE GENERAL ELECTION. I AM A WHITE DEMOCRAT AND I WILL NEVER, NEVER VOTE FOR OBAMA.
No SOCIALIST PRESIDENT!!!!
Obama only won because of the black voters. He will not win in the general election. The democrates are giving the presidency to McCain.
Obama is not dipping into your wallet. The last time I checked, it was optional to purchase his book.
Clinton is winning by only 6 in Indiana. Give it up, Obama has win. Hillary go home and learn how to bake some cookies.
Congrats Obama! After weeks of Rev. Wright on tv, radio, and print media-Obama still wins BIG! I believe this shows that Obama is the nominee of the Democratic party, and he is well on his way to being the next President of the United States....
Thank you NORTH CAROLINA....you did it. This thing is all but over.
Thank you INDIANA...you pulled so close in the end.
We can tell Hillary goodbye. THANK ALL OF YOU FROM YOUR TEXAS NEIGHBOR TO THE SOUTHWEST!!!
