Wellesley College Commencement Part 1

"Thank you very, very much, President Keohane. Mrs. Gorbachev, Trustees, faculty, parents, and I should say, Julia Porter, class president, and certainly my new best friend, Christine Bicknell -- and, of course, the Class of 1990. I am really thrilled to be here today, and very excited, as I know all of you must be,...

Wellesley College Commencement Part 2

"And early on I made another choice, which I hope you'll make as well. Whether you are talking about education, career, or service, you're talking about life -- and life really must have joy. It's supposed to be fun. One of the reasons I made the most important decision of my life, to marry George Bush, is because h...

Worst President

We are on the verge of war

"We cannot allow the natural passions and prejudices of other peoples to lead our country to destruction. The Roosevelt administration is the third powerful group which has been carrying this country toward war. Its members have used the war emergency to obtain a third presidential term for the first time in America...

Women in Aviation

"Obviously research regarding technological unemployment is as vital today as further refinement and production of labor-saving or comfort-giving devices. Among all the marvels of modern invention, that with which I am most concerned is of course air transportation. Flying is perhaps the most dramatic of recent scie...

Welcoming Home a Hero

Calvin Coolidge: "On behalf of his own people, who have a deep affection for him, and have been thrilled by his splendid achievements, and as President of the United States, I bestow the distinguished Flying Cross, as a symbol of appreciation for what he is and what he has done, upon Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh. In...

Whites can help us, but they can't join us

"Whites can help us, but they can't join us. There can be no black?white unity until there is first some black unity. We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves. Concerning nonviolence: it is criminal to teach a man not to defend himself when he is the constant v...

We will win

"This time we will win for the good of America and the good of every single American."

What better place to be than North Carolina in springtime

"You know, there were some folks who said, 'Well, no. Let's just call if off. Let's call if off before Pennsylvania. Let's call it off before Indiana and North Carolina. Well, I kinda thought to myself, what better place to be in the springtime than North Carolina. So my husband and my daughter and I, we've bee...

What Indiana needs is a debate

"There are a lot of issues I haven't even mentioned and I invite you to go to my website, HillaryClinton.com, if you want to know my agenda on autism or alzheimer's or bringing down gas prices or ending the home foreclosure crisis. It's all there. But what I think the people of Indiana deserve is a real one on one...

What particularly angered me

"And what I think particularly angered me was his suggestion somehow that my previous denunciation of his remarks was somehow political posturing. Anybody who knows me and knows what I'm about knows that I am about trying to bridge gaps and that I see the commonality in all people. And so when I start hearing comm...

We need to do better

"Ultimately, I think that the American people know that we have to do better than we are going right now. I think that they believe in the ideas of this campaign. I think they are convinced that special interests have dominated Washington too long. I think they are convinced that we've got to get beyond some of t...

What we should be talking about

"I am particularly distressed that this has caused such a distraction from what this campaign should be about, which is the American people. Their situation is getting worse. And, this campaign has never been about me, it has never been about Senator Clinton, or John McCain. It's not about Reverend Wright. Peopl...

We've been getting wacked

"Over the last month or so, we've been getting, you know, wacked. We've been getting wacked from Senator Clinton. We've been wacked by Senator McCain. And, that's ok. That's how we know the politics work. But, what I've got to say is that we've been hit back in ways that aren't true to what our campaign is abou...

World is white, black, Iraqi?

"John 3:16. Jesus said it much better than I could ever say it: 'For God so loved the world' ? 'world' is white, black, Iraqi, Darfurian, Sudanese, Zulu, Kosha. God loves all of God's children, because all of God's children are made in God's image."

White churches

"There are many white churches and white persons who are members of churches and clergy and denominations who have already taken great steps in terms of reconciliation. In the Underground Railroad, it was the white church that played the largest role in getting Africans out of slavery, in setting up almost all 40 o...

We raped the Continent

"White Christians have been trying for a long time to reconcile, that for other white Christians to understand that we must be reconciled is to understand the injustice that was done to our people as we raped the continent, brought those people here, built our country and then defined them as less than human. And m...

What God has for you is for you

"I said I would offer myself for candidacy for vice president. I have not offered myself for candidacy of God; I can't presume to know what God would want. In my tradition, however, what everybody has been saying to me as it pertains to the candidacy is, what God has for you is for you. If God intends for Mr. Obama...
