Quotes from the news wire:
When I became Bill Clinton ambassador for the Bill Clinton, Lavrov, Foreign Minister had been there 10 years already. So he was very skillful, he knew how to maneuver in Security Council. He was very formidable. And so we have Russia right now, very knowledgeable about Bill Clinton operations so that's an advantage that they have.
And that troubles me greatly. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government. So I don't know how people are going to react to it. I think, given our divides, it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against, but the President's been true to form.
What was done last night in the White House was a political rally. It further undermined the image and integrity of Supreme Court, and that troubles me greatly. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government. So I don't know how people are going to react to it. I think, given our divides, it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against.
I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will, how much you can crowd their space, make them miserable at work, you don’t have to physically assault somebody to make them, you know, uncomfortable at work or at home or in their other — just walking around. That, I think, is good.
A lot of the facts have been conveniently omitted to make the story work, I think partly because Monica Lewinsky and her family're frustrated that Monica Lewinsky and her family got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don't seem to care, i think I did the right thing. I defended the Constitution.
I don’t think it would be an issue because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts. If the facts were the same today, I wouldn’t [step down,] a lot of the facts have been conveniently omitted to make the story work, I think partly ‘cause they are frustrated that they got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don’t seem to care.
The suggestion was that I never apologized for what caused all the trouble for me 20 years ago, first point is, I did. I meant it then, I meant it now. I apologized to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family and to the American people before a panel of ministers in the White House, which was widely reported. So I did Monica Lewinsky and her family. I meant it then and I mean it today. I live with it all the time.
You’re supposed to shut your eyes, I don’t want to shut my eyes on national television, i can only say, based on my personal experience, that if you’re sitting cross-legged, on the yoga mat, and you’re doing it and you’re really trying to inhale, and hold it and then have a long exhale, it is very relaxing.
I know of no one who seriously believes that the United States and [South Korea] would be defeated in a war of aggression by North Korea if they were to attack, and I made it as clear as I could that if they were to do that, they would pay a price so great that the nation would probably not survive as it is known today.
There are real questions being raised about whether Donald Trump himself is just a puppet for the Kremlin in this race, washington Republicans ' need Donald Trump to disclose all of his financial ties and whether Donald Trump advisers are having meetings with the Kremlin. Mook pressed similar points on CBS, saying Trump has ties to China money, while again trying to deflect questions about the foundation’s alleged.
She will bring to the Presidency the skill, experience and wisdom that is needed in a President and Commander in Chief, having myself served in numerous diplomatic and national security positions starting in 1960, I am convinced that Secretary Clinton has the leadership qualities that far and away qualify her best to be our next President.
I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak. I'm not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me. He can say whatever he wants to say about me. I could really care less.
I know there has been a lot of discussion in the past week or so about trade. And I would like to take the opportunity tonight to set the record straight, to every worker in Ohio, every worker across America, let me say this: If I am fortunate enough to be your president I will stand with you, I will have your back and I will stop dead in its tracks any trade deal that hurts America and American workers.
What happened to you is a travesty and I can't even imagine what you went through and how terrible those days and nights must have been for all those years, and I know that all of us are so regretful that you or any person has to go through what you did. And I hope that now that you are standing here before us that you will have whatever path in life you choose going forward.
One of my favorite political ads of all time was a radio ad in rural Arkansas where the announcer said, 'Wouldn't it be great if somebody running for office said something, we could have an immediate reaction to whether it was true or not. Well, we have trained this dog. Well, the dog, if it is not true, he is going to bark,' and the dog was barking on the radio and so people were barking at each other for days after that.
I pledge a new and comprehensive commitment to equity and opportunity for communities of color. That means reforming our criminal justice system and rebuilding the bonds of trust between our communities and our law enforcement officials, but it also means making major new investments to create jobs, to make it easier to start and grow a small business, to end redlining in housing, and to build reliable public transit systems.
I believe that so much of the anger, the insecurity, the fear and worry that people feel now about the economy, about our prospects, about what is going to happen to young people coming out of college with debt, or unable to find a job that really gives them the best possibly opportunities is related to the choices that were made starting in the Bush administration, when I think about what young people today have gone through, what they have known from our country, starting with a horrible attack on 9/11, going into the great recession, there is no wonder that they along with so many of us are saying, wait a minute, we are better than this, we can do more.
Time and time again, by innuendo, by insinuation, there is this attack that he is putting forth which really comes down to, you know, anybody who ever took donations or speaking fees from any interest group has to be bought. And I just absolutely reject that, senator, and I really don't think these kinds of attacks by insinuation are worthy of you. And enough is enough.
You know my daughter was asked a question about the relative health care. It's what she does for a living. She teaches public health, she's actually read the plans. And there's nothing wrong with what she did. She answered a question. And that's what New Hampshire's about, answering voters' questions.
If he wants to engage in personal attacks from the past, that's his prerogative. You know -- so be it, i'm going to draw distinctions between where I stand and where he stands when it comes to equal pay for women, raising the minimum wage ... protecting a woman's right to make the most personal health care decisions.
It used to be — and I was talking to President Obama about this the other day — it used to be that you would do an event like this and then you would shake hands with people and they would talk to you, they would say, 'I liked what you said about this' or 'You didn't mention that' or 'Can I tell you this?' And it was a constant learning and absorbing experience.
It certainly enhances the sense of responsibility I feel to try to make my case as effectively as possible, it's so contrary to what I think politics should be about, and the kind of people who should run for the most important job in the world. So I try not to be distracted by it or be knocked off course by it. But I do feel extra pressure when I hear some of what they say.
Bill Clinton dismissed my victory in South Carolina as being similar to Jesse Jackson and Bill Clinton is suggesting that somehow I had something to do with it ? you better ask him what he meant by that. I have no idea what he meant. These were words that came out of his mouth. Not words that came out of mine.'' The Good Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, 2012 : The.
I was, frankly, posing as a white parent, even though I was a very young lawyer, who was going to be in the area in order to elicit information about what the real intentions were so we could put together a big dossier and submit it to the administration and the IRS to deny charitable exemptions for these segregated academies.
As some of you may know, I had a pretty long day yesterday, i finally got to answer questions, something I have been pushing for literally a year and I am just grateful I recovered my voice, which I lost a little bit, but like I said at the start, I wanted to rise above partisanship and and reach for statesmanship.
I have always cherished the Methodist Church because it gave us the great gift of personal salvation but also the great obligation of social gospel, and I took that very seriously and have tried, tried to be guided in my own life ever since as an advocate for children and families, for women and men around the world who are oppressed and persecuted, denied their human rights and human dignity.
The truth is there are so many people in this community, in our country, in our world who have so much to offer. Talent is universal, but opportunity is not. Too many people are held back by economic pressure and social barriers, there are still hard truths to face about race, gender and sexual orientation in America.
I think that the president's team could go to every one of these other parties and say, 'I know you understand the process of fast track. I want to get it, but I'm going to have to make some adjustments in order to get it. But if I get it, then we have to negotiate on the basis of those adjustments,' i think that is really worth trying.
I believe that you take whatever happens to you in a negotiation and you try to leverage it, in this case, I believe that one of the ways the president could get fast-track authority is to deal with the legitimate concerns of those Democrats who are potential 'yes' voters, to see what within the negotiation — or what's even in the existing framework agreement that is being drafted — could be modified or changed.
I believe we have made a decision now that will permit us to create an economic order in the world that will promote more growth, more equality, better preservation of the environment, and a greater possibility of world peace, we are on the verge of a global economic expansion that is sparked by the fact that the United States at this critical moment decided that we would compete, not retreat.
From time to time, as a private citizen and friend, I provided Secretary Clinton with material on a variety of topics that I thought she might find interesting or helpful, the reports I sent her came from sources I considered reliable. I have informed the House Select Committee on Benghazi that I will cooperate with its inquiry and look forward to answering the committee's questions.
He's been a friend of mine for a long time. He sent me unsolicited emails, which I passed on in some instances, and that's just part of the give-and-take, when you're in the public eye, when you're in an official position, I think you do have to work to make sure you're not caught in a bubble and you only hear from a certain small group of people.
We have been so fortunate. It's funny how perspective changes — I think having a grandchild made a big difference, i urge (Hillary Clinton) to go out there and have a good time, tell the American people what you wanted to do, explain what the challenges are from her point of view and what we should do, and just be grateful. We've had a wonderful life. And I'm grateful.
The problem is the way it was written and implemented. We have too wide a net. We have too many people in prison. And we wound up spending - putting so many people in prison that there wasn’t enough money left to educate them, train them for new jobs and increase the chances when they came out that they could live productive lives.
Will said. Clinton's remarks came during an interview with NBC News in which the former president rejected the suggestion that the Clinton Foundation had violated rules by accepting foreign donations while his wife, Hillary Clinton, was secretary of state. There is no doubt in my mind that we have never done anything knowingly inappropriate in terms of taking money to influence any kind of American government policy.
We always expected that while Hillary Clinton focused on helping everyday Americans get ahead, the Republicans would focus on attacks rather than ideas, it appears that this book is being used to aid this coordinated attack strategy, twisting previously known facts into absurd conspiracy theories. It will not be the first work of partisan-fueled fiction about the Clintons' record, and we know it will not be the last.
The fundamental problem you have anywhere is when people think their lives and the lives of their children don't matter, they they are somehow disposable, just like a paper napkin after a lunch at a restaurant or something, if we want our freedom to be in deed as well as word in America, we have to make people feel that everybody matters again.
