Inauguration Day is like two ships passing in the night: the new staff moving in while the other walks out, taking one final look at the White House lawn as they leave with their cardboard box of possessions.

Millennials are the future of our country and of our political parties, and they shouldn't be unfairly characterized or labeled. They deserve to be heard.

Commanders-in-chief make really tough decisions.

I feel like there should be a statute of limitations on scoring political points on the tragedy that was Hurricane Katrina.

One of the great joys in life is reading, yet it's the main thing people say they don't have time to do.

I've been in government and politics my entire career, and while I try to keep a level head and a reasonable tone in my commentary, even I can lose my head sometimes and let anger bubble over and burst out. It feels gross, looks ugly, and leaves a lasting mark.

Being a conservative has given me clarity; it's given me freedom - my mind is free; therefore, my heart is lighter. And that's a gift from God that I believe we have an obligation to share with others.

Trump's campaign slogan resonates strongly with a large population of Americans. 'Make America Great Again' portrays a nostalgia for what America once was, and a longing desire to return to that time. Millennials unfortunately don't know first-hand that time which Trump is talking about.

One time, on Marine One, the president asked me my opinion. I had a flashback to being at the kitchen table with my dad. That dominant male figure set me up for being confident to express myself with precision and persuasion.

I've never seen anything so abhorrent in my life as Harry Reid. He's an equal opportunity basher. He goes after everybody, and I think it has been so, frankly, disgusting.

I don't know if people are born with a worldview or if their thinking is a product of their environment.

Everyone learns from their experiences.

Vulnerable young women are being brainwashed by the radical lies of ISIS militants in the Middle East.

Part of the great thing of looking back on how I went from the cattle ranch to the White House was, I was a country music DJ. I saw Garth Brooks perform for free in 1992 at the Colorado State Fair where I met this person who knew about this graduate school program.

I love to drive in the Black Hills of Wyoming and South Dakota with Mount Rushmore as the central stop.

The Mexicans are not going to build the wall... they're not going to do it.

I never thought I would write a memoir at age 40... but I did have this unique place in history.

Sarcasm is like cheap wine - it leaves a terrible aftertaste.

I have a fascination with Flight 93. My emotions are mixed: awe, gratitude, fear, heartache, pride - even, in some ways, guilt.

President Obama was never going repeal Obamacare - he was not going to be brought to his knees with the threat of a government shutdown.

For as long as I can remember, we've been having debates about the foreign policy disasters and seemingly unsolvable problems around the world. Dinner conversations are replayed over generations - nothing seems to get better, and in some aspects, it seems dramatically worse, and that is especially true for women.

It's one of my favorite seasons of the year: Back to School. As a kid, I loved fresh school supplies, new outfits, the change of seasons, and the chance to crack open a new textbook.

I talk about millennials with a healthy dose of humility, as I'm a card-carrying member of Generation X. But I have daily interaction with young people at Dana Perino & Co., through my Minute Mentoring organization, with digital friends on social media, and especially at Fox News.

Millennials are a very interesting generation for a lot of reasons. They're absolutely adorable, but they have some significant challenges. Their lives and their careers are delayed by about 10 years, partly because of the recession, also because of technology and also because of the way that they approach things.

It isn't always on the front pages, but the horrifying mistreatment and subjugation of women around the globe is very much worthy of more attention.

I was raised to believe that America was a force for good in the world and that it should take its leadership role seriously.

We are so blessed to be here in America. We have freedom and opportunity unlike anywhere else in the world.

I respect all women who came before me to blaze trails into the workplace for us.

In Benin, there's a thing that family members wear the same pattern of traditional African clothing.

I personally have a pretty open philosophy about trying to talk to the press, and so does Dan Bartlett.

A key component of social media is 'following' - and no one is there to see what you have to say on Instagram or Twitter if they aren't motivated to follow you.

My great-grandmother lived to be 100 years old, so I got to know her. She always sent us birthday cards that had $2 bills inside - we kept them for good luck.

At some point, you're going to have to be willing to take a punch for your team. If your employees or your teammates will see that you're willing to do that, they are more likely to be loyal to you, and your team is more likely to function better.

I love my right-wing friends, my practical friends, my bleeding heart friends - without all of these viewpoints, life would be pretty boring.

Just as I try to find ways to be more productive every year for myself, I also look for tips to pass on to young professionals.

One of the best ways to deal with the peer pressure of the 'Fear of Missing Out' is to opt-out whenever possible.

The first presidential election I really paid attention to was in 1988 when George H. W. Bush ran against Michael Dukakis.

I think it is very good for the country, for the world, and especially for the Democrats that Harry Reid is retiring.

My dad was a voracious news consumer. I remember just sitting with my family all the time. I would sit on his lap and read the paper with him. He would read it to me.

I don't think that I would always be asked about my feelings about liberal bias in the media if there wasn't any liberal bias in the media. If it was a moot question, then we wouldn't always have the discussion.

I have been a Republican, and I've worked in Republican circles for so long, and I know that there are really smart, good policy ideas that are grounded in conservative ideology that could be persuasive for women, especially in an election where no one was really excited about either candidate.

The realities are, there are - you can be entertaining and you can be fun, and you can say things that actually appeal to people. You still have to figure out a way to get to 270 electoral votes. Get votes in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

People really think that the only way I got to be press secretary is because I somehow had a personal family connection to the Bushes or the Cheneys, and that wasn't true.

Young people really want you to give them a road map, and they will follow it to a tee. If you tell them, 'These are the eight steps you have to take to be successful,' they will do all eight very earnestly.

Even President Obama has not suggested he could get another country to pay for building a wall between Mexico and the United States.

Blaming alleged victims is not okay, no matter whose side starts it.

People like to talk about their hometowns and their travels, and the more places you've been, the more likely you'll be able to make a connection that can bring new business leads or career opportunities.

I loved the writing process. I loved it.

I could actually be somebody that, if you showed me new gun-control legislation could help solve this problem, I might actually be able to support something like that.
