Barack Obama accepted the Democratic nomination in a packed stadium and challenged John McCain to debate "who has the temperament, and judgment, to serve as the next commander in chief."

In a riveting speech the Illinois Senator spelled out his plan for change to the American people.

Obama was greeted by tens of thousands of cheering supporters chanting "yes we can."

He called upon Americans to help usher in an era of change after eight years of what he called failed policies.

"Change happens because the American people demand it -- because they rise up and insist on new ideas and new leadership, a new politics for a new time," he said.

He brushed aside critiques from his Republican opponent, accusing him of being out of touch.

"It's not because John McCain doesn't care. it's because John McCain doesn't get it," he said of economic problems facing the country.

Point by point, he addressed McCain's policies on the Iraq war, the economy, offshore drilling and health care, accusing him of pursuing the same policies as the Bush administration.
