BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

The House and Senate have passed the "Darfur Peace and Accountability Act," but the two chambers have yet to agree on final language. Obama, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has been championing the measure. He will visit Sudan during an August trip to Africa.

Speaking before his largest crowd since becoming a senator, Obama said, "Silence, acquiescence, paralysis in the face of genocide is wrong."
