Famous quotes containing the word candidates:

    In the past, it seemed to make sense for a sportswriter on sabbatical from the playpen to attend the quadrennial hawgkilling when Presidential candidates are chosen, to observe and report upon politicians at play. After all, national conventions are games of a sort, and sports offers few spectacles richer in low comedy.
    Walter Wellesley (Red)

    Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)

    The difficulty is no longer to find candidates for the offices, but offices for the candidates.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
