Obama: Our time has come
by UPI

CHICAGO - Barack Obama, speaking to supporters in Illinois late Super Tuesday, praised and blasted his Democratic U.S. presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

"She was a friend before this campaign and she'll be a friend after this is over ... but this fall, we owe the American people a real choice."

He said Clinton had accepted more campaign funds from lobbyists than any of the Republicans in the race.

"The stakes are too high to play the same Washington game with the same Washington players ... This time we have to seize the moment."

Obama also downplayed what may turn out to be a higher Clinton delegate count nationwide. "The polls are just closing in California and the votes are still be counted in cities and towns across America," he said. "But there is one thing on this February night that we do not need the final results to know. Our time has come."

Touching on his campaign themes, he repeated, "Our time has come. Our movement is real. And change is coming to America."

Despite Super Tuesday, the Democrats are facing 14 more primaries before the early part of March.
