DENVER, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- The following are remarks Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., delivered Wednesday at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday in Denver.

Hello, Democrats!

(APPLAUSE)

I just wanted to come out here for a little -- little something to say.

(APPLAUSE)

I want everybody to now understand why I am so proud to have Joe Biden, and Jill Biden, and Beau Biden, and Mama Biden, and the whole Biden family with me on this journey to take America back.

(APPLAUSE)

I think the convention's gone pretty well so far. What do you think?

(APPLAUSE)

I think Michelle Obama kicked it off pretty well, don't you think?

(APPLAUSE)

If I'm not mistaken, Hillary Clinton rocked the house last night.

(APPLAUSE)

And just in case you were wondering, I think President Bill Clinton reminded us of what it's like when you've got a president who actually puts people first.

Thank you, President Clinton.

(APPLAUSE)

Now, we are going to be moving to Mile High Stadium tomorrow, and I want to let you know why. At the start of this campaign, we had a very simple idea, which is, change in America doesn't start from the top up -- the top down. It starts from the bottom up, that change is brought about because ordinary people do extraordinary things.

And so we want to open up this convention to make sure that everybody who wants to come can join in the party and join in the effort to take America back. I think we are going to have a great night tomorrow night. And I look forward to seeing you there.

God bless you. God bless America.
