奧巴馬就職演講(Change Has Come To America)

00:00

奧巴馬當選美國總統就職演說——《美國將迎來變革》

奧巴馬訪華時下已經成為了全球的焦點,中美兩國的關系將在未來很大程度影響著全世界。

借此時機,和大家分享一下奧巴馬的就職演講,請大家領略一下這位被人們稱為‘智商高于克林頓’的總統的演講風采。

Hello, Chicago.

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.
美國是一個一切皆有可能的地方,如果還有人對這一點心存懷疑,如果還有人懷疑美國奠基者的夢想在我們時代是否還有活力,還有人懷疑我們民主制度的力量,那么,你們今晚正是對那些疑問作出了回答。

It’s the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference.
在學校和教堂周圍所出現的前所未有的長隊是答案,這個國家從未見過這么多的人前來投票,人們排三個、四個小時的隊來進行有生以來的第一次投票,因為他們相信這一次將會不同,他們發出的聲音可能就是那個差別。

It’s the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.
這是一個年輕人和年老人、富人和窮人、民主黨人和共和黨人、黑人、白人、西班牙裔人、亞裔、印第安人、同性戀和異性戀、殘障人士和健全人士所作出的回答。美國人向世界發出一個信息:我們從不只是一些個人的累加或者“紅色州“和“藍色州“的累加。

We are, and always will be, the United States of America.
我們是,并且永遠是美利堅合眾國。

It’s the answer that led those who’ve been told for so long by so many to be cynical and fearful and doubtful about what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day.
這是一個引導人們的答案,太多的人在很長的時間內給他們說這個答案,以至于他們對此持憤世疾俗的態度,對我們是否可以再一次把握歷史的希望感到擔心和懷疑。

It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this date in this election at this defining moment change has come to America.
已經過去了很長時間,但是今晚,由于我們今天在這場選舉所采取的行動,在這個決定性的時候,變革來到了美國。

A little bit earlier this evening, I received an extraordinarily gracious call from Sen. McCain.
今晚早些時候,我接到來自參議員麥凱恩的一個極具風度的電話。

Sen. McCain fought long and hard in this campaign. And he’s fought even longer and harder for the country that he loves. He has endured sacrifices for America that most of us cannot begin to imagine. We are better off for the service rendered by this brave and selfless leader.
麥凱恩在這場選戰中進行了長期和艱苦的努力,他為這個他所愛的國家戰斗了更長的時間,作出了更艱苦的努力。他為美國承受了我們中的大多數人無法想像的犧牲。由于這位勇敢和無私領導人的服務,我們的生活變得更好。

I congratulate him; I congratulate Gov. Palin for all that they’ve achieved. And I look forward to working with them to renew this nation’s promise in the months ahead.
我向他表示祝賀,我向佩林州長表示祝賀,向他們所取得的成果表示祝賀,我盼望與他們共事以繼續這個國家在未來歲月的承諾。

I want to thank my partner in this journey, a man who campaigned from his heart, and spoke for the men and women he grew up with on the streets of Scranton and rode with on the train home to Delaware, the vice president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden.
我想感謝我在競選旅程的伙伴,一位用心競選的男士,一位為和他一起在斯克蘭頓街頭一同長大的男人和女子代言、經常坐火車回特拉華州的男士,美國當選副總統拜登。

And I would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend for the last 16 years the rock of our family, the love of my life, the nation’s next first lady Michelle Obama.
如果沒有我過去16年最好的朋友、我們家庭的中堅、我生命中的摯愛,我今天晚上不可能站在這里,美國下一位第一夫人米歇爾·奧巴馬。

Sasha and Malia I love you both more than you can imagine. And you have earned the new puppy that’s coming with us to the new White House.
薩沙和馬莉婭,我愛你們,我對你們的愛超出了你們的想象。你們已贏得了新的寵物狗,它將和我們一起前往新的白宮。

And while she’s no longer with us, I know my grandmother’s watching, along with the family that made me who I am. I miss them tonight. I know that my debt to them is beyond measure.
盡管她沒能和我們在一起,但我知道,我的祖母和養大我的家人在看著我,我今晚很想念他們,我知道我欠他們的東西是無法計量的。

To my sister Maya, my sister Alma, all my other brothers and sisters, thank you so much for all the support that you’ve given me. I am grateful to them.
我的妹妹馬婭、我的姐姐奧瑪,我其他的兄弟和姐妹,非常感謝你們對我的支持,我感謝他們。

And to my campaign manager, David Plouffe, the unsung hero of this campaign, who built the best ——the best political campaign, I think, in the history of the United States of America.
我的競選經理大衛·普勞夫,這位競選活動的無名英雄,他進行了最好的政治競選活動,我認為這是美國歷史上最棒的。

To my chief strategist David Axelrod who’s been a partner with me every step of the way. To the best campaign team ever assembled in the history of politics you made this happen, and I am forever grateful for what you’ve sacrificed to get it done.
我的首席策略師大衛·艾克斯羅德,他一直是追隨我的伙伴。你們組建了政治史上最好的競選團隊,是你們成就了今天,我永遠感謝你們為此所作出的犧牲。

But above all, I will never forget who this victory truly belongs to. It belongs to you. It belongs to you.
但最重要的是,我永遠不會忘記這場勝利真正屬于誰,它屬于你們,它屬于你們。

I was never the likeliest candidate for this office. We didn’t start with much money or many endorsements. Our campaign was not hatched in the halls of Washington. It began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston. It was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give $5 and $10 and $20 to the cause.
我從來不是最有可能獲得這一職務的候選人。我們剛開始并沒有太多資金,也沒有得到許多人的支持。我們的競選活動并非始自華盛頓的大廳里,而是始于得梅因、康科德、查爾斯頓這些地方的普通民眾家中。那些辛勤工作的人們從自己微薄的儲蓄中捐出5美元、10美元、20美元。

It grew strength from the young people who rejected the myth of their generation’s apathy who left their homes and their families for jobs that offered little pay and less sleep.
競選活動因為年輕人的支持而越來越有聲勢,他們拒絕了他們那一代對政治不感興趣的神話,他們離開家,從事那些薪水少而且辛苦的工作。

It drew strength from the not-so-young people who braved the bitter cold and scorching heat to knock on doors of perfect strangers, and from the millions of Americans who volunteered and organized and proved that more than two centuries later a government of the people, by the people, and for the people has not perished from the Earth.
競選活動的聲勢也來自那些已不再年輕的人們,他們冒著嚴寒酷暑,敲開陌生人的家門進行競選宣傳;競選聲勢也源自數百萬的美國民眾,他們充當志愿者和組織者,他們證明了在兩百多年以后,民有、民治、民享的政府并未從地球上消失。這是你們的勝利。

This is your victory.
這是你們的勝利。

And I know you didn’t do this just to win an election. And I know you didn’t do it for me. You did it because you understand the enormity of the task that lies ahead. For even as we celebrate tonight, we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime —— two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century.
我知道你們的所做的一切并不只是為了贏得選舉,我也知道你們做這一切并不是為了我。你們這樣做是因為你們明白前面的任務有多么艱巨。即便我們今晚歡呼慶祝,我們也知道明天將面臨我們一生之中最艱難的挑戰——兩場戰爭、一個面臨危險的星球,一個世紀以來最嚴重的金融?;?。

Even as we stand here tonight, we know there are brave Americans waking up in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan to risk their lives for us. There are mothers and fathers who will lie awake after the children fall asleep and wonder how they’ll make the mortgage or pay their doctors’ bills or save enough for their child’s college education.
就在我們今晚站在這里的時刻,我們知道勇敢的美國士兵在伊拉克的沙漠里和阿富汗的群山中醒來,他們冒著生命危險來?;ぷ盼頤塹納?。仍有在孩子熟睡后仍難以入眠的父母,他們擔心如何償還按揭月供、付醫藥費或是存夠錢讓孩子上大學。

There’s new energy to harness, new jobs to be created, new schools to build, and threats to meet, alliances to repair.
我們需要開發新的能源、創造新的工作崗位,我們需要修建新學校,應對眾多威脅、修復與許多國家的盟友關系。

The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even in one term. But, America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there.
前方的道路將很漫長,我們攀登的腳步會很艱辛。我們可能無法在一年甚至一個任期內實現這些目標,但我從未像今晚這樣滿懷希望,我們將實現我們的目標。

I promise you, we as a people will get there.
我向你們承諾——我們作為一個整體將會達成目標。

There will be setbacks and false starts. There are many who won’t agree with every decision or policy I make as president. And we know the government can’t solve every problem.
我們會遭遇挫折和不成功的起步。我作為總統所做的每項決定或政策,會有許多人持有異議,我們也知道,政府不能解決所有問題。

But I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face. I will listen to you, especially when we disagree. And, above all, I will ask you to join in the work of remaking this nation, the only way it’s been done in America for 221 years —— block by block, brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand.
但我將總是會向你們坦陳我們所面臨的挑戰。我會聽取你們的意見,尤其是存在不同意見的時候。最重要的是,我會請求你們參與重建這個國家,以美國221年來從未改變的唯一方式——一磚一瓦、同心協力。

What began 21 months ago in the depths of winter cannot end on this autumn night. This victory alone is not the change we seek. It is only the chance for us to make that change. And that cannot happen if we go back to the way things were.
21個月前在寒冬所開始的一切不應當在今天這個秋夜結束。今天的選舉勝利并不是我們所尋求的改變——這只是我們進行改變的機會。如果我們仍然按照過去的方式行事,我們所尋求的改變將不會發生。

It can’t happen without you, without a new spirit of service, a new spirit of sacrifice.
沒有你們,沒有服務和犧牲的新精神,就不可能發生改變。

So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility, where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other. Let us remember that, if this financial crisis taught us anything, it’s that we cannot have a thriving Wall Street while Main Street suffers.
因此,讓我們發揚新的愛國和負責精神,所有的人都下定決心參與其中,更加努力地工作,不僅是為自己而是為彼此。讓我們記住這一點,如果說這場金融?;袒崍宋頤鞘裁炊韉幕?,那就是我們不可能在金融以外的領域處于困境的同時擁有繁榮興旺的華爾街。

In this country, we rise or fall as one nation, as one people. Let’s resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.
在這個國家,我們患難與共。讓我們抵制重走老路的誘惑,避免重新回到令美國政治長期深受毒害的黨派紛爭、小題大作、不成熟的表現。

Let’s remember that it was a man from this state who first carried the banner of the Republican Party to the White House, a party founded on the values of self-reliance and individual liberty and national unity.
讓我們記住,是伊利諾伊州的一名男子首次將共和黨的旗幟扛到了白宮。共和黨是建立在自立、個人自由以及國家團結的價值觀之上的。

Those are values that we all share. And while the Democratic Party has won a great victory tonight, we do so with a measure of humility and determination to heal the divides that have held back our progress.
這也是我們所有人共同的價值觀。雖然民主黨今天晚上贏得了巨大的勝利,但我們是以謙卑的態度和彌合阻礙我們進步的分歧的決心贏得這場勝利的。

As Lincoln said to a nation far more divided than ours, we are not enemies but friends. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.
林肯在向遠比我們眼下分歧更大的國家發表講話時說,我們不是敵人,而是朋友——雖然激情可能會褪去,但這不會割斷我們感情上的聯系。

And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too.
對于那些現在沒有投票給我的美國人,我想說,我可能沒有贏得你們的選票,但是我聽到了你們的聲音,我需要你們的幫助,而且我也將是你們的總統。

And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments and palaces, to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of the world, our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand.
對于那些徹夜關注美國大選的海外人士,從國會到皇宮,以及在被遺忘的角落里擠在收音機旁的人們,我們的經歷雖然各有不同,但是我們的命運是一樣的,新的美國領導層已產生了。

To those -- to those who would tear the world down: We will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security: We support you. And to all those who have wondered if America’s beacon still burns as bright: Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope.
那些想要顛覆這個世界的人們,我們將擊敗你們。那些追求和平和安全的人們,我們支持你們。那些所有懷疑美國 的燈塔能否能像以前一樣明亮的人們,今天晚上我們再次證明,我們國家真正的力量并非來自我們武器的威力或財富的規模,而是來自我們理想的持久力量:民主、自由、機會、不屈服的希望。

That’s the true genius of America: that America can change. Our union can be perfected. What we’ve already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.
這才是美國真正的精華——美國能夠改變。我們的聯邦會日漸完美。我們現在已取得的成就為我們將來能夠取得和必須取得的成就增添了希望。

This election had many firsts and many stories that will be told for generations. But one that’s on my mind tonight’s about a woman who cast her ballot in Atlanta. She’s a lot like the millions of others who stood in line to make their voice heard in this election except for one thing: Ann Nixon Cooper is 106 years old.
這次大選創造了多項第一,也誕生了很多將世代流傳的故事。但是今天晚上令我難忘的卻是在亞特蘭大投票的一名婦女:安·尼克松·庫波爾。她和其他數百萬排隊等待投票的選民沒有什么差別,除了一點:她已是106歲的高齡。

She was born just a generation past slavery; a time when there were no cars on the road or planes in the sky; when someone like her couldn’t vote for two reasons —— because she was a woman and because of the color of her skin.
她出生的那個時代奴隸制度剛剛結束;那時路上沒有汽車,天上也沒有飛機。當時像她這樣的人由于兩個原因不能投票,首先她是女性,其次她是黑人。

And tonight, I think about all that she’s seen throughout her century in America -- the heartache and the hope; the struggle and the progress; the times we were told that we can’t, and the people who pressed on with that American creed: Yes we can.
今天晚上,我想到了她在美國過去一百年間所經歷的種種:心痛和希望;斗爭和進步;在那里時代,我們被告知我們辦不到,一些人繼續堅信著美國的信念——是的,我們能做到。

At a time when women’s voices were silenced and their hopes dismissed, she lived to see them stand up and speak out and reach for the ballot. Yes we can.
婦女當時沒有投票權,她們的希望被挫敗,但是安·尼克松·庫波爾活著看到婦女們站了起來,看到她們站出來發表自己的見解,看到她們參加大選投票。是的,我們能做到。

When there was despair in the dust bowl and depression across the land, she saw a nation conquer fear itself with a New Deal, new jobs, a new sense of common purpose. Yes we can.
當30年代的沙塵暴和大蕭條使人們感到絕望時,她看到一個國家用新政、新的就業機會以及對新目標的共同追求戰勝恐慌。是的,我們能做到。

When the bombs fell on our harbor and tyranny threatened the world, she was there to witness a generation rise to greatness and a democracy was saved. Yes we can.
當炸彈襲擊了我們的港口、暴政威脅到全世界,她見證了一代美國人的偉大崛起,見證了一個民主國家獲得拯救。是的,我們能做到。

She was there for the buses in Montgomery, the hoses in Birmingham, a bridge in Selma, and a preacher from Atlanta who told a people that "We Shall Overcome." Yes we can.
她看到蒙哥馬利通了公共汽車、伯明翰接上了水管、塞爾馬建了橋,一位來自亞特蘭大的傳教士告訴人們:“我們將克服阻力?!笆塹?,我們能做到。

A man touched down on the moon, a wall came down in Berlin, a world was connected by our own science and imagination. And this year, in this election, she touched her finger to a screen, and cast her vote, because after 106 years in America, through the best of times and the darkest of hours, she knows how America can change. Yes we can.
人類登上月球、柏林墻倒下,世界被我們的科學和想像被連接在一起。今年,在這場選舉中,她用手指觸摸屏幕投下自己的選票,因為在美國生活了106年之后,經歷了最好的時光和最黑暗的時刻之后,她知道美國如何能夠發生變革。是的,我們能做到。

America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves -- if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?
美國,我們已經走過了一條漫漫長路。我們已經歷了很多。但是我們仍有很多事情要做。因此今夜,請讓我們自問--如果我們的孩子能夠活到下個世紀;如果我的女兒有幸活得和安一樣長,她們將會看到怎樣的改變?我們將會取得什么樣的進步。

This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment.
現在是我們回答這個問題的機會。這是我們的時刻。

This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth, that, out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope. And where we are met with cynicism and doubts and those who tell us that we can’t, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can.
這是我們的時代——讓我們的人民重新就業,為我們的后代敞開機會之門,恢復繁榮,推進和平,重新確立“美國夢“,再次證明這樣一個基本的真理:我們是一家人;只要一息尚存,我們就有希望;當我們遇到嘲諷和懷疑,當有人說我們辦不到的時候,我們要以這個永恒的信條來回應他們。是的,我們能做到。

Thank you. God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America.
感謝你們。上帝保佑你們。愿上帝保佑美利堅合眾國。
