WASHINGTON–Presuming, perhaps, that he will be the Democratic nominee, White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) plans a “One Year from 2008 Election” speech Saturday in South Carolina, where he will, according to his campaign “Lay Out the Choice Facing Voters”

from the campaign….

SPARTANBURG, S.C. Nearly a year before the 2008 presidential election, U.S. Senator Barack Obama will deliver a speech in Spartanburg, SC outlining how as President he would unite the country behind a sense of common purpose and turn the page on the divisive politics and broken promises that have dominated Washington in recent years. Recognizing the moment of great challenge and great promise the country faces on Election Day 2008, Obama will tomorrow offer a fundamentally different choice for the American people and pledge to deliver change that is not just a slogan but change we can believe in.
