Dante, did someone actual use this as the quote, or are you just having fun on your own? Sadly, my brain is off and I can't tell.

So here is the quote IN context:

"I'm not running for president because I think I'm blessed with such personal greatness that history has anointed me to save our country in its hour of need. My country saved me. My country saved me, and I cannot forget it. And I will fight for her for as long as I draw breath, so help me God."
- John McCain

Just a little joke. I was skimming the text of the speech and I read it that way the first time around. In this context it sounds a bit more like a line Obama would use.
