Obama Cheered at Birmingham Campaign Stop

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Thousands cheered Democrat Barack Obama at a Birmingham rally yesterday.

The Illinois senator and presidential candidate spoke for over an hour about his message of change that helped him win the South Carolina primary. He touched on issues including the economy, health care, Social Security and ending the war in Iraq.

The crowd filled the 9,000-seat Bartow Arena at UAB.

Banners reading "Alabama Loves Barack" were hoisted next to campaign furnished signs bearing the slogan "Change We Can Believe In."

Alabama's presidential primaries will be February 5th.
