Presidency of Bill Clinton Second Term 1997���2001

Famous quotes containing the words presidency, bill, clinton and/or term:

    Some of the offers that have come to me would never have come if I had not been President. That means these people are trying to hire not Calvin Coolidge, but a former President of the United States. I can’t make that kind of use of the office.... I can’t do anything that might take away from the Presidency any of its dignity, or any of the faith people have in it.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    All I really want to be is boring. When people talk about me, I’d like them to say, “Carol’s basically a short Bill Bradley.” Or, “Carol’s kind of like Al Gore in a skirt.”
    Carol Moseley-Braun (b. 1947)

    Children’s lives are not shaped solely by their families or immediate surroundings at large. That is why we must avoid the false dichotomy that says only government or only family is responsible. . . . Personal values and national policies must both play a role.
    —Hillary Rodham Clinton (20th century)

    A radical is one of whom people say “He goes too far.” A conservative, on the other hand, is one who “doesn’t go far enough.” Then there is the reactionary, “one who doesn’t go at all.” All these terms are more or less objectionable, wherefore we have coined the term “progressive.” I should say that a progressive is one who insists upon recognizing new facts as they present themselves—one who adjusts legislation to these new facts.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
