Obama in November 2007: "The Day I'm Inaugurated..."

I had missed this from a few days ago:

I truly believe that the day I'm inaugurated, that not only does the country look at itself differently but the world looks at America differently....If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world, they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and, I may be a Christian, but I also understand their point of view... I’m intimately concerned with what happens in these countries and the cultures and the perspectives that these folks have, and those are powerful tools for us to be able to reach out to the world....I think that the world will have confidence that I am listening to them and that our future and our security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world. That will ultimately make us safer...
But he does have a Nobel Peace Prize, so the Norwegians are much less likely to attack Americans now.
