Hillary Clinton 2008 DNC SpeechI am honored to be here tonight. A proud mother. A proud Democrat. A proud American. And a proud supporter of Barack Obama.My friends, it is time to take back the country we love.Whether you voted for me, or voted for Barack, the time is now to unite as a single party with a single purpose. We are on the same team, and none of us can sit on the sidelines(on the sidelines 旁观; 不直接参与: As a journalist, I was on the sidelines during the political crisis.我是记者, 在这一政治危机时期我是目睹一切的局外人.(球场等的)边线,两侧场外区域)1.使退出比赛,使下场(尤指由于受伤);把…排除在核心之外;使靠边.This is a fight for the future.

No how. No McCain.Barack Obama is my candidate. And he must be our President.Tonight we need to remember what a Presidential election is really about. When the polls have closed, and the ads are finally off the air, it comes down to you -- the American people, your lives, and your childrens futures.For me, its been a privilege to meet you in your homes, your workplaces, and your communities. Your stories reminded me everyday that Americas greatness is bound up If one thing is bound up with or in another, they are closely connected with each other, and it is difficult to consider the two things separately.Their interests were completely bound up in their careers.=tied up within the lives of the American people -- your hard work, your devotion to duty, your love for your children, and your determination to keep going, often in the face of enormous obstacles.You taught me so much, you made me laugh, and . . . you even made me cry. You allowed me to become part of your lives. And you became part of mine.I will always remember the single mom who had adopted two kids with autism孤独症,自我中心主义, didnt have health insurance and discovered she had cancer. But she greeted me with her bald秃头的, 秃的;明显的,不加掩饰的;简单的 赤裸裸的 head painted with my name on it and asked me to fight for health care.I will always remember the young man in a Marine Corps t-shirt who waited months for medical care and said to me: "Take care of my buddies; a lot of them are still over there ... .and then will you please help take care of me?"I will always remember the boy who told me his mom worked for the minimum wage and that her employer had cut her hours. He said he just didnt know what his family was going to do.I will always be grateful to everyone from all fifty states, Puerto Rico and the territories, who joined our campaign on behalf of all those people left outleave sb/sth out (of sth)not include or mention; exclude; omit 不包括或不提及; 排除在外; 忽略掉 and left behind by the Bush Administrtation.To my supporters, my championsv为…而斗争;捍卫;声援;捍卫者, 拥护者 -- my sisterhood 1.姐妹关系,姐妹之谊,妇女团体a special loyal relationship among women who share the same ideas and aimsof the traveling pantsuits1.长裤与衣相配成套的便服 - from the bottom of my heart: Thank you.You never gave in. You never gave up. And together we made history.Along the way, America lost two great Democratic champions who would have been here with us tonight. One of our finest young leaders, Arkansas1.阿肯色州(美国中南部的州) Democratic Party Chair, Bill Gwatney, who believed with all his heart that America and the South could be and should be Democratic from top to bottom1.从上到下, 完全.And Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a dear friend to many of us, a loving mother and courageous勇敢的;无畏的 adj adv n 勇敢 无畏 leader who never gave up her quest to make America fairer and smarter, stronger and better. Steadfast坚定的;不动摇的;不动的,不变的 in her beliefs, a fighter of uncommon grace, she was an inspiration to me and to us all.Our heart goes out to Stephanies son, Mervyn, Jr, and Bills wife, Rebecca, who traveled to Denver to join us at our convention.Bill and Stephanie knew that after eight years of George Bush, people are hurting at home, and our standing名望;身份;地位;级别;名声; 比赛名次,排名; 持续时间,,n has eroded逐渐毁坏;削弱;损害;侵蚀,腐蚀 around the world. We have a lot of work ahead.Jobs lost, houses gone, falling wages, rising prices.

The biggest deficit in our nations history. Money borrowed from the Chinese to buy oil from the Saudis.Putin and Georgia, Iraq and Iran.I ran for President to renew the promise of America. To rebuild the middle class and sustain the American Dream, to provide the opportunity to work hard and have that work rewarded, to save for college, a home and retirement, to afford the gas and groceries1.食品;杂货 and still have a little left over each month.To promote a clean energy economy that will create millions of green collar jobs.To create a health care system that is universal, high quality, and affordable so that parents no longer have to choose between care for themselves or their children or be stuck in dead end jobs simply to keep their insurance.To create a world class education system and make college affordable again.To fight for an America defined by deep and meaningful equality - from civil rights to labor rights, from womens rights to gay rights, from ending discrimination to promoting unionization工会;建立工会;联合,结合 to providing help for the most important job there is: caring for our families.

Those are the reasons I support Barack Obama. And those are the reasons you should too.I want you to ask yourselves: Were you in this campaign just for me? Or were you in it for that young Marine and others like him? Were you in it for that mom struggling with cancer while raising her kids? Were you in it for that boy and his mom surviving on the minimum wage? Were you in it for all the people in this country who feel invisible?We need leaders once again who can tap into1ENERGY/MONEYalso tap into[T]to use or take what is needed from something such as an energy supply or an amount of money2 IDEAS also tap intoto make as much use as possible of the ideas, experience, knowledge etc that a group of people has that special blend(不同事物的)和谐结合,融合 of American confidence and optimism that has enabled generations before us to meet our toughest challenges. Leaders who can help us show ourselves and the world that with our ingenuity1.独创力;聪明才智;心灵手巧, creativity, and innovative spirit, there are no limits to what is possible in America.This wont be easy. Progress never is. But it will be impossible if we dont fight to put a Democrat in the White House.We need to elect Barack Obama because we need a President who understands that America cant compete in a global economy by padding用软物填塞﹑ 覆盖﹑ 垫或衬(某物): a padded envelope, 有垫料夹层的封套(用以邮寄易碎物品)padding(书﹑ 文章﹑ 讲话等的)凑篇幅的材料 the pockets of energy speculators1.投机倒把者, 投机商, while ignoring the workers whose jobs have been shipped overseas.

He built his campaign on a fundamental belief that change in this country must start from the ground up, not the top down. He knows government must be about "We the peopleWe the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,[1] promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.美国宪法前言" not "We the favored few."And when Barack Obama is in the White House, hell revitalize 1.使恢复元气,使具有新的活力2. 使更强壮;使恢复生机(或健康)our economy, defend the working people of America, and meet the global challenges of our time. Democrats know how to do this. As I recall, President Clinton and the Democrats did it before. And President Obama and the Democrats will do it again.Hell transform our energy agenda by creating millions of green jobs and building a new, clean energy future. Hell make sure that middle class families get the tax relief 1.税收减除,减轻税收负担they deserve. And I cant wait to watch Barack Obama sign a health care plan into law that covers every single American.Barack Obama will end the war in Iraq responsibly and bring our troops home - a first step to repairing our alliances1.(国家、政党等的)结盟, 联盟, 同盟 around the world.And he will have with him a terrific partner in Michelle Obama. Anyone who saw Michelles speech last night knows she will be a great First Lady for America.Americans are also fortunate that Joe Biden will be at Barack Obamas side. He is a strong leader and a good man. He understands both the economic stresses here at home and the strategic challenges abroad. He is pragmatic, tough, and wise. And, of course, Joe will be supported by his wonderful wife, Jill.They will be a great team for our country.Now, John McCain is my colleague and my friend.He has served our country with honor and courage.But we dont need four more years . . . of the last eight years.More economic stagnation淤塞;停滞;不景气 ... and less affordable health care.More high gas prices ... and less alternative energy.More jobs getting shipped overseas ... and fewer jobs created here.More skyrocketing debt ...home foreclosures1.丧失抵押品赎回权,排斥,没收;假若业主,没有准时缴付按揭还款(利息和本金), 银行便可以在法庭上申请没收物业 的权利 ... and mounting bills that are crushing破坏,毁坏(某人的信心或幸福);压坏,压伤;镇压,消灭,击溃 our middle class families.More war . . . less diplomacy.More of a government where the privileged come first ... and everyone else comes last.John McCain says the economy is fundamentally sound. John McCain doesnt think that 47 million people without health insurance is a crisis. John McCain wants to privatize1.使私有化 Social Security. And in 2008, he still thinks its okay when women dont earn equal pay for equal work.With an agenda like that, it makes sense that George Bush and John McCain will be together next week in the Twin Cities双子城 美国明尼苏达州东南部 指密西西比河畔相邻的明尼阿波利斯Minneapolis 和圣保罗 . Because these days theyre awfully Very 很 非常;hard to tell apart.America is still around after 232 years because we have risen to the challenge of every new time, changing to be faithful to our values of equal opportunity for all and the common goodThe common good is often regarded as utilitarian ideal, thus representing "the greatest possible good for the greatest possible number of individuals"..And I know what that can mean for every man, woman, and child in America. Im a United States Senator because in 1848 a group of courageous women and a few brave men gathered in Seneca Falls塞尼卡福尔斯 A village of west-central New York on the Seneca River east-southeast of Rochester.

To brave1.勇敢面对; 不怕; 不顾 v violence and jail.And after so many decades - 88 years ago on this very day - the 19th amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote would be forever enshrined放置或保存sth于… in our Constitution.My mother was born before women could vote. But in this election my daughter got to vote for her mother for President.This is the story of America. Of women and men who defy公然反抗;不服从;蔑视;向。。。挑战 the odds and never give up.How do we give this country back to them?By following the example of a brave New Yorker , a woman Harriett Tubmanwho risked her life to shepherd V 带领;引;护送slaves along the Underground Railroad.a group of people in the US who illegally helped slaves to become free by helping them to escape to the northern US and Canada, in the period before the Civil War.
