26 August, 2008

美国民主党全国代表大会星期一在科罗拉多州的丹佛开幕,发言者强调维护党内团结以及为实现共同目标而努力的必要。民主党总统候选人奥巴马的夫人对与会代表说,他们有义务,用她的话说,“为本应有的世界奋斗”。她讲述说,她的丈夫坚信社会正义,并致力于为所有人实现有财政保障和机会的“美国梦”。

民主党参议员麦卡斯基尔说,奥巴马“了解真正的美国”,可以让社会各阶层的人团结起来。她抨击共和党对手麦凯恩,用她的话说,得到“有权势的极少数富有阶层”的支持。

Speakers at the U.S. Democratic National Convention stressed the need for their party to unite and work together towards common goals, as the party's convention opened in Denver, Colorado (Monday). The wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama told delegates they have an obligation to, as she put it, "fight for the world as it should be". She described her husband as a strong believer in social justice, committed to achieving the "American dream" of financial security and opportunity for all.

Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill described Obama as "someone who understands the real America" and can bring together people from diverse walks of life. She attacked his Republican rival, John McCain, as someone backed by, in her words, "the powerful, the few, and the extremely wealthy."
