Presidential hopeful Barack Obama brought a crowd of supporters in San Francisco to their feet today with a vow to end the Iraq War and restore America's standing in the world.
The Illinois senator told three thousand people during a lunchtime function that he would follow through on those pledges as his first acts if he's elected president.
Obama says he will try to improve America's image with other countries by speaking before the United Nations and talking to leaders of nations hostile to U-S policies.
His stop in San Francisco at what's called the "Generation Obama and Women for Obama Event" comes as he tries to gain more support from women of all backgrounds."
Obama was in Las Vegas yesterday, where he said he would support
federal aid for people facing foreclosure on their homes and reforms of mortgage industry.
