Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama told a seven year old girl he was running for president because America had changed at a recent campaign stop.

“America is …, uh, is no longer, uh … what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, I don’t want that future for my children,” he told supporters in Elkhart, Indiana.
