Obama Speaks In Denver

Democratic presidential candidate and Illinois Senator Barack Obama has told a packed house at the University of Denver the Iraq war "should never have been authorized and should never have been waged."

Obama is visiting Colorado Wednesday as part of an effort to energize voters before the Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses that will take place in several states on February 5th.

Colorado is one of the caucus states.

Obama told the crowd that "fundamental change" is needed in America, and that the U.S. needs to do more than simply "turn the page on the Bush-Cheney policies."

Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy, spoke to the crowd before Obama.

Other speakers included Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, former Colorado Senator Gary Hart, state Senate President Peter Groff and Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith.

    We need Hillarty Clinton, the clinton years was the best years we have had. Think about this guys, Obama is a good guy, but we need someone who knows the white house and can get us back to what we was.

    Jan, we should have never went to war? Did you go? Obama is a typical politician. They talk the talk until they get into office. No politician should ever be elected or allowed to serve as President unless they served at least one honorable tour in the military.

    Yeah Obama! I'm a republican voting for Obama because this guy is a real leader and really makes sense. We need to clean house and we never should have gone to Iraq and blew all our money on the endless illegal war. Just think if we had spent that money investing in our own country or... cutting taxes! Now we it's time to clean up this mess and it will hurt for all of us. Obama is the leader to do it!! God Bless America
