WILLIAMS: How is it that with – what, 13 days to go, you’re fighting for your life in a 47/47 race?
BARACK OBAMA: Well, actually, I think that, you know, we always knew this was gonna be a close race from the start. And what we have right now is a – is a lead that we’ve maintained throughout this campaign. And we are gonna just continue to drive home the message that there are two fundamentally different choices in this election about where we take the country.
WILLIAMS: So after the excitement of ’08, given the power of incumbency, you got Bin Laden, you did not expect to be sitting on a more substantial race than we are as we sit here today?
OBAMA: No, Brian, I – listen, you guys have some short memories. Folks in your business were writing me off a year ago, saying there’s no way I would win. Right? So, you know, these things go in ebbs and flows. And, you know, the one thing I’ve tried to always be is just steady in terms of what I believe in, who I’m fighting for. And you know, I think that one of the qualities I bring to bear in this campaign is people see what did I say I was gonna do in 2008? And what have I delivered? And they can have some confidence that the things I say, I mean.
