Quotes from the news wire:
He and I had our differences, but no one ever questioned his patriotism. Our battles were strictly political battles, there's no question in my mind that Babe Ruth in this league would be Babe Ruth in this league that Babe Ruth in this league's in with Donald Trump in the league. President Trump wouldn't make the team.
I think women have certain sensitivities that men don't have. Things dealing with violence. I think the best advocates we have for gun control are women. The best advocates we have for non-engagement in foreign wars, foreign entanglements, are women. I think women are just so improved the Senate, and this isn't something I read in a book. I watched it. I was there.
President Obama is a courageous man. I could not be more grateful to him and his team for working with me to make this happen, and for everything he has done to protect public lands in Nevada. By designating Gold Butte a national monument, President Obama has shown once again why he is one of greatest environmental presidents in American history.
I'm sorry I hurt myself doing something that I've been doing for years. But it's affected my stability. I'm getting better, i've been doing exercises for that. ... I can read now. Don't read nearly as fast as I used to. I had world-class speed reading ability. I don't have that anymore. But I'm doing just fine.
I'm sorry, I cannot hold back a smile, there are a lot of good reasons for this deal. But the best is that Cheney's against it.

Because the fact is that how Leader McConnell can come out there without grimacing when he would say something like that is beyond my ability to comprehend.
But there is no alternative. What he talks about is basically fluff, there is no alternative. What is the alternative? To have us alone? Have the international community walk away? We have negotiated this in good faith. It hasn't taken months. It's taken years. Years. This is the diplomatic breakthrough that will go down in history as one of the biggest diplomatic moves in the history of the world.
I've said publicly in Nevada on more than one occasion -- we have, one of our statues, is Pat McCarran, i think he should be put out to pasture some place. I think he doesn't represent the things I think our country stands for certainly what Nevada doesn't stand for. So the statues are important. They really send a message.
The one good part about the accident is for the first time in our married life I was forced to do nothing. The first three weeks I couldn't do anything except feel sorry for myself. But I got over that, i wanted to make sure that I could take care of my caucus and so I did some pondering. I'm sure it had some bearing on my not running but it wasn't the decision-maker.
I have never seen debate shut down as aggressively as when Senator McConnell refused to allow Democratic senators to debate their own amendments for a single minute, i’m disappointed that so far, the Republican Senate has spent all of its time on a special-interest giveaway to help a Canadian oil company ship foreign oil overseas.
