Obama Cites Gandhi To Back His Call For Change

Calling Mahatma Gandhi's message and significance as universal, US presidential top-runner Barack Obama has said that real change in America "will not come from Washington - it will come when the people, united, bring it to Washington".

A big admirer of Gandhi, whose portrait hangs in his office, Obama issued a statement on the birth anniversary of the great leader, calling upon Americans to "rededicate ourselves, every day from now until November 4 (election day), and beyond, to living Gandhi's call to be the change we wish to see in the world".
