"... If you say that we can solve this problem with just that, its not the truth ... and we know its not the truth. Its time to call on America to be patriotic about something more than war. We ought to ask the American people to sacrifice for the good of their country, for the good of their children and their grandchildren. We can't continue to drive around in vehicles that get 10 miles to the gallon [4.2 km/litre]. We can't continue to consume energy, the way we are today.

And we, our party, we need to tell the country the truth about this, and lead it in a different direction."
