But only if those young people are being trained. We need only to look at the Middle East and North Africa to see that large numbers of young people with no jobs and stifled voices can fuel instability and disorder." DESALEGN LISTENING TO OBAMA (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT, BARACK OBAMA, SAYING: "Democracy is not just formal elections. When journalists are put behind bars for doing their jobs or activists are threatened as governments crack down on civil society, then you may have democracy in name but not in substance. I am convinced that nations cannot realize the full promise of independence until they fully protect the rights of their people." AUDIENCE LISTENING OBAMA ADDRESSING PLENARY FROM PODIUM (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT, BARACK OBAMA, SAYING: "When a leader tries to change the rules in the middle of the game just to try and stay in office, it risks instability and strife as we have seen in Burundi and this is often just a first step down a perilous path, and sometimes you will hear a leader say 'well I am the only person who can hold this nation together'. If that is true then that leader has failed to truly build their nation." DELEGATES SAT AND OBAMA AT PODIUM VARIOUS OF PEOPLE LISTENING (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT, BARACK OBAMA, SAYING: "I actually think I am a pretty good president, I think if I ran I could win. But I can't. So there is a lot I would like to do to keep America moving, but the law is the law."
