Some suggestions for you :

I can tell you this: If I'm ever in a position to call the shots, I'm not going to rush to send somebody else's kids into a war.

I'll be glad to reply to or dodge your questions, depending on what I think will help our election most.

No, I'm not anguished and tormented.

I was offered a job on Wall Street by my uncle. But I wanted to get out. Make-it-on-my-own kinda thing.

I think in defeat you grope for things that are happy, and it's hard.

One of the good things about the way the Gulf War ended in 1991 is, you'd see the Vietnam veterans marching with the Gulf War veterans.

I'm conservative, but I'm not a nut about it.

Ageing's alright, better than the alternative, which is not being here.

I'm not trying to get myself up a notch on the ladder by shoving somebody else down on the ladder, whether it's a candidate or the president of the United States or anybody else. I just don't believe that's the way one oughta campaign, I've never done that.

I have a form of Parkinson's disease, which I don't like. My legs don't move when my brain tells them to. It's very frustrating.

Well, I think everybody is frustrated by the finances of the U.N. and the inability to solve problems of war and peace.

I am not one who - who flamboyantly believes in throwing a lot of words around.

Read my lips: no new taxes.

The day will come - and it is not far off - when the legacy of Lincoln will finally be fulfilled at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, when a black man or woman will sit in the Oval Office. When that day comes, the most remarkable thing about it will be how naturally it occurs.
