Presidential quotes by William J. Clinton
#1. I don't know whether it's the finest public housing in America or the crown jewel of the American penal system. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Presidential quotes by William H. Frey
#2. New racial minorities now constitute a fresh and welcome presence in the suburbs and slow-growing rural areas as well as in big cities. They are a much-needed tonic for a labor force that would otherwise be starting to shrink. Furthermore, they will serve as a necessary conduit to other nations in today's increasingly globalized economy. The political clout of racial minorities, both new and old, was demonstrated in the 2008 and 2012 U.S. presidential elections, and diversity within the electorate continues to increase more rapidly than most political strategists could have anticipated only a couple of election cycles ago. #Quote by William H. Frey
Presidential quotes by Jesse Ventura
#3. After Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, I was heartened to see him issue an Open Government Initiative on his first full day in office. #Quote by Jesse Ventura
Presidential quotes by Ralph Nader
#4. The 60th seed at Wimbledon gets a chance at Center Court. The 60th seed in the NCAA gets a chance to go to the Final Four. But the third seed [in presidential politics] is shut out. #Quote by Ralph Nader
Presidential quotes by Gary Johnson
#5. I agree that the two-party system stomps on any kind of competition. A great first step is to open the presidential debates to all qualified candidates, including the Libertarians. If that happens, the Libertarian party will experience unprecedented growth. #Quote by Gary Johnson
Presidential quotes by Edward S. Greenberg
#6. The "evils of faction" theme recurs throughout our history, from the writings of the "muckrakers" at the turn of the twentieth century to the Democratic presidential primary campaigns of 2008 with talk of Halliburton's contracts in Iraq and the shady practices of sub-prime mortgage lenders. #Quote by Edward S. Greenberg
Presidential quotes by Herbert Hoover
#7. The durability of free speech and free press rests on the simple concept that it search for the truth and tell the truth. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Presidential quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#8. When you think about a presidential candidate spending all of his or her time talking to that tiny, tiny fraction of us who have the capacity to fund political elections, it's obvious why the perspective of government is skewed relative to what most Americans care about. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Presidential quotes by Jacques Delors
#9. My presidential victory, if it had happened, would have been artificial in relation to the Socialist party. It may be that on my deathbed, I will come to regret my decision, but for the moment, I live at peace with it. #Quote by Jacques Delors
Presidential quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#10. That is the problem with this rich and anguished generation. Somewhere a long time ago they fell in love with the idea that politicians- even the slickest and brightest presidential candidates- were real heroes and truly exciting people. That is wrong on its face. They are mainly dull people with corrupt instincts and criminal children. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Presidential quotes by Donald Jeffries
#11. Questions surround nearly every aspect of the assassination. The chain
of possession regarding each piece of evidence was tainted beyond repair.
The presidential limousine, which represented the literal crime scene,
was taken over by officials immediately after JFK's body was carried into
Parkland Hospital and tampered with. The Secret Service apparently cleaned
up the limousine, washing away crucial evidence in the process. Obviously,
whatever bullet fragments or other material that was purportedly found
there became immediately suspect because of this. On November 26, the
windshield on the presidential limo was replaced.
The supposed murder weapon - a cheap, Italian Mannlicher-Carcano
rifle with a defective scope, allegedly ordered by Oswald through a post office
box registered to his purported alias, Alex Hidell - is similarly troublesome.
The two Dallas officers who discovered the rifle on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building, Seymour Weitzman and Eugene Boone,
both swore in separate affidavits that the weapon was a German Mauser. As
was to become all too common in this case, they would later each claim to be
"mistaken" in a curiously identical manner.
In fact, as late as midnight on November 22, Dallas District Attorney
Henry Wade would refer to the rifle as a Mauser when speaking to the press.
Local WFAA television reported the weapon found as both a German #Quote by Donald Jeffries
Presidential quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#12. Of all the questions which can come before this nation, short of the actual preservation of its existence in a great war, there is none which compares in importance with the great central task of leaving this land even a better land for our descendants than it is for us. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Presidential quotes by John Quincy Adams
#13. Slavery is the great and foul stain upon the North American Union. #Quote by John Quincy Adams
Presidential quotes by Jesse Jackson
#14. I was extended secret service protection during my presidential run in 1984, when I received the most death threats ever made toward a candidate. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Presidential quotes by T. Ellery Hodges
#15. I have not voted in a human presidential election for quite some time, Jonathan. Admittedly, it may not be my place. Still, do you know what really stops me from selecting a candidate?" Jonathan listened but mostly focused on containing his nausea. "It's a paradox, I know. It just seems that anyone smart enough to know the responsibility of such a seat of power would never be dumb enough to apply for it. #Quote by T. Ellery Hodges
Presidential quotes by Anonymous
#16. Those who should, never will. Those who will, never should. (about presidential candidates) #Quote by Anonymous
Presidential quotes by Aaron Klein
#17. When Obama was first proposed as a presidential candidate in 2007, the nation failed to have a meaningful debate concerning the serious constitutional issue of electing someone whose father was not a U.S. citizen. #Quote by Aaron Klein
Presidential quotes by Michael Bennet
#18. I've focused on making sure we have talented teachers and principals in our schools through proposals like the GREAT Teachers and Principals Act and the Presidential Teachers Corps. #Quote by Michael Bennet
Presidential quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#19. You know, all this is speculating. I don't think any of us really know what's going on. I think there's always that pendulum action in American politics, and I expect Nixon to run into trouble in the next few years. I think there's going to be disillusionment over his war settlement. I think the economic problems are not going to get better and the problems in the great cities are going to worsen, and it may be that by '76 somebody can come along and win on a kind of platform that I was running on in '72. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Presidential quotes by H.L. Mencken
#20. There comes a day of public ceremonial, and a chance to make a speech ... A million voters with IQs below 60 have their ears glued to the radio. It takes four days' hard work to concoct a speech without a sensible word in it. Next a dam must be opened somewhere. Four dry Senators get drunk and make a painful scene. The Presidential automobile runs over a dog. It rains. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Presidential quotes by Richard Engel
#21. Egypt has a presidential system. The president runs the state. Who the president is matters profoundly. #Quote by Richard Engel
Presidential quotes by Jay Leno
#22. It really kind of looks like now that John Kerry is on his way to the presidential nomination. The only thing that can sink John Kerry now is an Al Gore endorsement. #Quote by Jay Leno
Presidential quotes by Gore Vidal
#23. A nation not of men but of laws, intoned John Adams as he, among other lawyers, launched what has easily become the most demented society ever consciously devised by intelligent men. We are now enslaves by laws. We are governed by lawyers. We create little but litigate much. Our monuments are the ever-expanding prisons, where millions languish for having committed victimless crimes or for simply not playing the game of plausible deniability (aka lying) with a sufficiently good legal team. What began as a sort of Restoration comedy, The Impeachment of a President, on a frivolous, irrelevant matter, is suddenly turning very black indeed, and all our political arrangements are at risk as superstitious Christian fundamentalists and their corporate manipulators seem intent on overthrowing two presidential elections in a Senate trial. This is no longer comedy. This is usurpation. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Presidential quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#24. Virtually every one of the most far-right neocon Bush officials - including Dick Cheney himself - has spent years now praising Obama for continuing their terrorism policies which Obama the Senator and Presidential Candidate once so harshly denounced. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Presidential quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#25. It was all for the eventual payoff and thank-you by giving Hillary Clinton the Democrat Party presidential nomination. And it went awry in 2008 because somebody they liked better came along. Somebody they really liked better. I mean, somebody they loved better. They threw her overboard like an unwanted sack of potatoes down on the farm for Barack Hussein Obama. And she seethed, felt betrayed. Don't blame her a bit. They betrayed her big time. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Presidential quotes by Sandra Day O'Connor
#26. I think we may be seeing the beginnings of a resurgence of civic-mindedness in this country. Hopefully the younger generations, which came out in record numbers during the last presidential election, will pass their enthusiasm on to their children. #Quote by Sandra Day O'Connor
Presidential quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#27. Our forms of government - though both cast in the democratic pattern - are greatly different. Indeed, sometimes it appears that many of our misunderstandings spring from an imperfect knowledge on the part of both of us of the dissimilarities in our forms of government. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Presidential quotes by Herbert Hoover
#28. Freedom requires that government keep the channels of competition and opportunity open, prevent monopolies, economic abuse and domination. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Presidential quotes by Craig Ferguson
#29. Scientists say over the next hundred years, the coast of California will sink almost five feet. So the presidential candidates need to do something. Mitt Romney is conflicted. On one hand, he denies that global warming exists. But if California is under water, he would definitely win the next election. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Presidential quotes by Jeff Miller
#30. The 2004 Election marks the first time in modern political history that Republican voter turnout matched Democratic turnout in a presidential election year. #Quote by Jeff Miller
Presidential quotes by Ann Coulter
#31. When liberals start acting like they're opposed to pre-marital sex and mothers having careers, you know McCain's vice presidential choice has knocked them back on their heels. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Presidential quotes by Vladimir Putin
#32. I believe that the presidential term should be limited. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Presidential quotes by Conan O'Brien
#33. Jeb Bush is getting his presidential campaign in gear. Last week he said he supports a path to citizenship for immigrants. He said, 'I believe in an America where hard work and dedication can lead to any job that your brother and dad once had.' #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Presidential quotes by Walter Kirn
#34. Cross the wrong state border with your gun, or wake up one morning to new legislation or a new presidential executive order, and suddenly you're the bad guy, not the good guy. No wonder some gun owners seem so touchy; they feel, at some level, like criminals in waiting. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Presidential quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#35. Will we ever have a woman President? We will.
I hope I'll be around to vote for her--assuming I agree with her agenda. She'll have to earn my vote based on her qualifications and ideas, just like anyone else.
When that day comes, I believe that my two presidential campaigns will have helped pave the way for her. We did not win, but we made the sight of a woman nominee more familiar. We brought the possibility of a woman president closer. We helped bring into the mainstream the idea of a woman leader for our country. That's a big deal, and everyone who played a role in making that happen should be deeply proud. This was worth it. I will never think otherwise. This fight was worth it. #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#36. We can say with some assurance that, although children may be the victims of fate, they will not be the victims of our neglect. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#37. This is a great country and requires a good deal of all of us, so I can imagine nothing more important than for all of you to continue to work in public affairs and be interested in them, not only to bring up a family, but also give part of your time to your community, your state, and your country. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by Seth Godin
#38. We vote for a presidential candidate without saying, Why not run the country for a month and then we'll see . #Quote by Seth Godin
Presidential quotes by George W. Bush
#39. I regret that a private comment I made to the vice presidential candidate made it through the public airways. #Quote by George W. Bush
Presidential quotes by Madeleine M. Kunin
#40. The vice presidential candidate does not usually make much difference at the polls. But that may be changing as voters become more aware that the understudy must be ready to take over if needed. #Quote by Madeleine M. Kunin
Presidential quotes by Michael Davidow
#41. How much leeway do you think any president has? Seventy-five percent of what he does is dictated by circumstance, no matter what. So don't sacrifice an opportunity to be at the seat of power, friend. To hold a piece of that power in your own two hands. Just because you don't like the cut of a man's coat. #Quote by Michael Davidow
Presidential quotes by Jon Meacham
#42. Reagan is the Republican FDR, an exemplar of presidential greatness. #Quote by Jon Meacham
Presidential quotes by Rutherford B. Hayes
#43. The ex-Presidential situation has its advantages, but with them are certain drawbacks. The correspondence is large. The meritorious demands on one are large. More independent out than in place, but still something of the bondage of the place that was willingly left. On the whole, however, I find many reasons to be content. #Quote by Rutherford B. Hayes
Presidential quotes by Jay Leno
#44. Tonight the Republican presidential candidates had a big debate, 10 candidates. The last time that many rich white guys got together, I think Exxon merged with Mobil. #Quote by Jay Leno
Presidential quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#45. You know what's really frightening? You (Jon Stewart) actually have an influence on this presidential election. That is scary, but it's true. You've got stoned slackers watching your dopey show every night and they can vote. #Quote by Bill O'Reilly
Presidential quotes by Kate Clinton
#46. As you can imagine I'm disappointed as anything that I was not selected to be the presidential running mate. And I find it continually appalling that it would be a radical thing to have a woman on the ticket. #Quote by Kate Clinton
Presidential quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#47. I feel as fit as a bull moose. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Presidential quotes by George W. Bush
#48. We are not deceived by their pretenses to piety. We have seen their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions - by abandoning every value except the will to power - they follow in the path of fascism, and Nazism, and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way, to where it ends: in history's unmarked grave of discarded lies. #Quote by George W. Bush
Presidential quotes by Helen Thomas
#49. Early on in Carter's presidential bid, I tried to cover a Bible study class that he taught in Plains, Georgia. All of the male reporters were allowed in, but when I tried to enter, a man standing at the door blocked my way and told me ladies were not allowed in. 'I'm no lady, I'm a reporter,' I told him, and he stepped aside for me. #Quote by Helen Thomas
Presidential quotes by Enrique Pena Nieto
#50. Once every 12 years there is a unique opportunity to reinforce the bonds between Mexico and the United States, when our presidential election cycles coincide. #Quote by Enrique Pena Nieto
Presidential quotes by Andrew D. Lambert
#51. In case anyone in America had missed the utter helplessness of their government, 4,000 British troops captured and burned Washington DC. The Presidential mansion, where the decision for war had been taken, was one of the public buildings to be torched. #Quote by Andrew D. Lambert
Presidential quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#52. Despite the present, temporary interests that Israel has in common with France and Britain, you ought not to forget that the strength of Israel and her future are bound up with the United States. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Presidential quotes by Robbie Savage
#53. He needs to get a hard slap of reality in the face every once in a while. He has an arrogant side. #Quote by Robbie Savage
Presidential quotes by Millard Fillmore
#54. May God save the country, for it is evident that the people will not. #Quote by Millard Fillmore
Presidential quotes by Marianne Williamson
#55. Presidential campaigns are exhausting. Once they're over, we all heave a sigh of relief that we have our lives back, the constant emails and news reports no longer harangue us, and the topic even turns at times to something else entirely. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Presidential quotes by Bill Dedman
#56. In votes cast, Latinos have increased to five million in the 1996 Presidential election, up from two million in the 1976 election. The number of Hispanic elected officials has not risen so fast. #Quote by Bill Dedman
Presidential quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#57. Time magazine interviewed Bill Clinton about the current presidential campaign, and he claimed he had to ask Hillary to marry him three times before she said yes. Then Hillary was like, 'Yeah. That wasn't me.' #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#58. Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#59. Public debt [is] a burden on all the people. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Presidential quotes by McKay Coppins
#60. Romney had tried to explain his reasoning to this chorus of confidants, but they were still urging him not to shut the door. They contended that even if he didn't want to launch a formal campaign right now, it would be a mistake to take himself entirely out of the running. They laid out a vivid, detailed scenario in which a fractured Republican Party - divided by a wide field of niche presidential candidates - fails to unite behind a single nominee in 2016, and ends up with a chaotic, historic floor fight at the national convention. Facing a televised descent into disarray, the GOP delegates would naturally turn to Romney - the fully vetted, steady-handed Republican statesman - for salvation. Your party might still need you, Mitt's loyalists insisted. The country might still need you! #Quote by McKay Coppins
Presidential quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#61. One Saturday morning last May, I joined the presidential motorcade as it slipped out of the southern gate of the White House. A mostly white crowd had assembled. As the motorcade drove by, people cheered, held up their smartphones to record the procession, and waved American flags. To be within feet of the president seemed like the thrill of their lives. I was astounded. An old euphoria, which I could not immediately place, gathered up in me. And then I remembered, it was what I felt through much of 2008, as I watched Barack Obama's star shoot across the political sky. I had never seen so many white people cheer on a black man who was neither an athlete nor an entertainer. And it seemed that they loved him for this, and I thought in those days, which now feel so long ago, that they might then love me, too, and love my wife, and love my child, and love us all in the manner that the God they so fervently cited had commanded. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Presidential quotes by Mat Johnson
#62. Curing America's racial pathology couldn't be done with good intentions or presidential elections. #Quote by Mat Johnson
Presidential quotes by Noam Chomsky
#63. In November 2008, the day of the presidential election, Israeli military forces invaded Gaza and killed half a dozen Hamas militants. Well, that was followed by a missile exchange for a couple of weeks in both directions. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Presidential quotes by I. King Jordan
#64. I'm a psychologist. I was a psychology faculty member, and then I became an administrator of the department, then the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. At the time of the presidential search, I was the dean. #Quote by I. King Jordan
Presidential quotes by J. D. Hayworth
#65. And if you like socialized medicine, you will love this government bureaucracy under [then-Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee] Al Gore that will actually cost seniors who get $500 a year in prescription drugs right now - it will end up costing seniors more money and take away control from those seniors. #Quote by J. D. Hayworth
Presidential quotes by Rainbowbrook
#66. Normally I'd have given up by now, but he was so cute I decided that he was entitled to be difficult. I mean, I may get distracted sometimes, but I always saved a special space at the back of my mind for Sean, like the Presidential Suit at Ritz Carlton. Throughout the first two years of high school, I let him stay there in peace, undisturbed by my meaningless flings which came and went in the hotel lobby. #Quote by Rainbowbrook
Presidential quotes by Randall Munroe
#67. A 1-watt laser is an extremely dangerous thing. It's not just powerful enough to blind you - it's capable of burning skin and setting things on fire. Obviously, they're not legal for consumer purchase in the US. Just kidding! You can pick one up for $300. Just do a search for "1-watt handheld laser." So, suppose we spend the $2 trillion to buy 1-watt green lasers for everyone. (Memo to presidential candidates: This policy would win my vote.) #Quote by Randall Munroe
Presidential quotes by Kevin Madden
#68. The brutality of the pace. This was my third presidential campaign and it was a thousand times faster paced than my first one in 2004. The news cycle is constant and there has been an explosion in the number of news outlets covering them. As as result we're witnessing news and entertainment melding together to create what I'd describe as the "American Idolization" of campaigns and politics. #Quote by Kevin Madden
Presidential quotes by Rutherford B. Hayes
#69. One of the tests of the civilization of people is the treatment of its criminals. #Quote by Rutherford B. Hayes
Presidential quotes by Jeff Goodell
#70. Nowhere has the political power of coal been more obvious than in presidential campaigns. #Quote by Jeff Goodell
Presidential quotes by Keith Richards
#71. From the 12th Congressional District Hopeful William Jefferson Clinton during the Nixon investigations.
I wanted to share some information I've turned up regarding two of your Clinton quotes. #Quote by Keith Richards
Presidential quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#72. To think that I, the son ofthe manse, should be able to help restore the Holy Land to its people. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#73. Our labor unions are not narrow, self-seeking groups. They have raised wages, shortened hours, and provided supplemental benefits. Through collective bargaining and grievance procedures, they have brought justice and democracy to the shop floor. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by Dina Powell
#74. Our nation must engage with the rest of the world. But to be successful, we must listen. Our interaction with the world must be a conversation, not a monologue ... these exchanges are a strategic pillar of our nation's public diplomacy. #Quote by Dina Powell
Presidential quotes by Casey Affleck
#75. Sometimes in the middle of a presidential campaign, there's a political movie, and people are sick of hearing about politics, and they don't want to see that movie. They'd rather see "Godzilla." #Quote by Casey Affleck
Presidential quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#76. When Arthur Schlesinger Sr. pioneered the 'presidential greatness poll' in 1948, the top five were Lincoln, Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jefferson. Only Wilson appears to be seriously fading, probably because his support for the World War I-era Sedition Act now seems outrageous; in this analogy, Woodrow is like the Doors and the Sedition Act is Oliver Stone. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Presidential quotes by William Bennett
#77. It is our character that supports the promise of our future - far more than particular government programs or policies. #Quote by William Bennett
Presidential quotes by Michael Mandelbaum
#78. A presidential candidate who appeared not to understand or respect the parameters of responsible foreign policy conduct would not get the political support necessary to win the office. #Quote by Michael Mandelbaum
Presidential quotes by Camille Paglia
#79. As a registered Democrat, I am praying for a credible presidential candidate to emerge from the younger tier of politicians in their late 40s. A governor with executive experience would be ideal. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Presidential quotes by Geraldine Ferraro
#80. I am the first to admit that were I not a woman, I would not have been the vice-presidential nominee. #Quote by Geraldine Ferraro
Presidential quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#81. Mob rule can not be allowed to override the decisions of our courts. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Presidential quotes by David Letterman
#82. Presidential candidate Howard Dean is now being attacked for dodging the draft. I never knew this about the guy - but now I know this guy is presidential material. #Quote by David Letterman
Presidential quotes by John Irving
#83. Patriotism is not necessarily defined as blind devotion to a president's particular agenda - and that to dispute a presidential policy is not necessarily anti-American. #Quote by John Irving
Presidential quotes by Grover Cleveland
#84. My greatest trials come through those professing to be near and attached friends, who expect things. #Quote by Grover Cleveland
Presidential quotes by Ronald Reagan
#85. Are you better off than you were four years ago? One of my favorite quotes Is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores ... Is there more or less unemployment? #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Presidential quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#86. At this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement somewhat in detail of a course to be pursued seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which public declarations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of the great contest which still absorbs the attention and engrosses the energies of the nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself, and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all. With high hope for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured.

On the occasion corresponding to this four years ago all thoughts were anxiously directed to an impending civil war. All dreaded it, all sought to avert it. While the inaugural address was being delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it without war--seeking to dissolve the Union and divide effects by negotiation. Both parties deprecated war, but one of them would make war rather than let the nation survive, and the other would accept war rather than let it perish, and the war came.

One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the southern part of it. These sl #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Presidential quotes by Joe Biden
#87. Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we've had probably in American history. The idea he doesn't realize that Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that's the Executive Branch. He works in the Executive Branch. He should understand that. Everyone should understand that. And the primary role of the vice president of the United States of America is to support the president of the United States of America, give that president his or her best judgment when sought, and as vice president, to preside over the Senate, only in a time when in fact there's a tie vote. The Constitution is explicit. The only authority the vice president has from the legislative standpoint is the vote, only when there is a tie vote. He has no authority relative to the Congress. #Quote by Joe Biden
Presidential quotes by Jan Reid
#88. In a state that continued to be saddled with a sternly limited governmental structure devised when the South was just emerging from the bruising experience of the Civil War and Reconstruction, she also had to contend with fact that national politics and changing demographics had left her swimming for her life as a liberal Democrat in an ocean of conservative Republicans. In a failed presidential campaign, Texas's Republican senator Phil Gramm once boasted that the best thing a politician can have is money. It helps, of course, and yet he was proved quite wrong: the biggest advantage a politician can have is that people like you. #Quote by Jan Reid
Presidential quotes by Jeff Greenfield
#89. Remember, the first presidential candidate to reject public financing for both the primary and general election was ... Barack Obama, in 2008. He did it, in spite of a flat pledge to the contrary, because his campaign saw that it could vastly outspend John McCain. #Quote by Jeff Greenfield
Presidential quotes by David Letterman
#90. Do you know who is ready to go with the presidential campaign? Jeb Bush. Jeb already has plans to end the war in Iraq that his brother started. All he needs is a hot tub time machine. #Quote by David Letterman
Presidential quotes by George H. W. Bush
#91. The anchor in our world today is freedom, holding us steady in times of change, a symbol of hope to all the world. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Presidential quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#92. Dr. Ben Carson has the most moving personal narrative in modern presidential politics. His mother, one of 24 children, had only a third-grade education. She was married at age 13, bore Ben and his brother, and then raised the boys as an impoverished single mother in Detroit. As a young boy, Carson was a terrible student. #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Presidential quotes by Walter Isaacson
#93. Responded with a presidential note describing how Washington defined a "base." Work on the new facility was halted, #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Presidential quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#94. After three elections, voters finally caught on that Obama's faults were not in the stars, but in himself. They apparently tired of the usual distractions from a dismal presidential record. #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Presidential quotes by James Madison
#95. Respect for character is always diminished in proportion to the number among whom the blame or praise is to be divided. #Quote by James Madison
Presidential quotes by Newt Gingrich
#96. By the end of my second term, we will have the first permanent base on the moon, and it will be American. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Presidential quotes by Jay Leno
#97. With the presidential debates right around the corner, John Kerry is going to play Mitt Romney to help the President prepare for the debates. That's kind of a stretch; a rich white guy from Massachusetts playing a rich white guy from Massachusetts. #Quote by Jay Leno
Presidential quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#98. In their hallway, he looked slightly less presidential, but only because the heat had made him messily roll up the sleeves of his button-down shirt and remove his tie. His dusty brown hair was mussed, too, in that way that Virginia warmth always managed. But the watch was still there, large enough to knock out bank robbers, and he still had that handsome glow. The glow that meant that not only had he never been poor, but his father hadn't, nor his father's father, nor his father's father's father. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Presidential quotes by George H. W. Bush
#99. We have ... drawn a line in the sand. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Presidential quotes by Ronald Reagan
#100. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall! #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Presidential quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#101. Guatemala's ornate presidential palace, once a terrifying fortress whose every corridor was patrolled by heavily armed soldiers in berets and camouflage uniforms, is now a normal public building where ordinary citizens enter without fear. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Presidential quotes by Robert H. Jackson
#102. It is only the words of the bill that have presidential approval, where that approval is given. It is not to be supposed that in signing a bill the President endorses the whole Congressional Record. #Quote by Robert H. Jackson
Presidential quotes by T. Torrest
#103. I'd won our school science fair in the fourth grade, my "Phases of an Egg" presentation eclipsing the dozen or so baking-soda-and-vinegar volcanoes presented by the rest of our class. I'd taken gold in our town's Junior Olympics when I was ten, and got to stand up on the top of a three-tiered pedestal after placing first in the Fifty Yard Dash. One time when I was fourteen, I'd received a Presidential Physical Fitness certificate from Ronald Reagan, when I logged a record-breaking eighty-two situps in the span of a minute. But nothing compared to the sense of accomplishment I felt - no award, no ribbon, no trophy - no achievement lived up to the unfathomable triumph of having won the heart of Terrence C.

Presidential quotes by Dan Eaton
#104. A man named Vicente Fox was sworn in as president of Mexico, ending seventy-five years of control by the Institutional Revolutionary Party. Across the border, the United States Supreme Court released its landmark decision in Bush v. Gore, deciding the 2000 presidential election and ensuring the term "hanging chad" took its place permanently in the English lexicon. Leninist guerrillas launched an attack in Istanbul, and a series of bombs exploded in downtown Manila, killing twenty-two people and injuring dozens more. Cambodia's failed coup slipped from network news bulletins, and the country returned once more to relative international obscurity. #Quote by Dan Eaton
Presidential quotes by George Soros
#105. In 2012, the far-right Golden Dawn won 21 seats in Greece's parliamentary election, the right-wing Jobbik gained ground in my native Hungary, and the National Front's Marine Le Pen received strong backing in France's presidential election. Growing support for similar forces across Europe points to an inescapable conclusion: the continent's prolonged financial crisis is creating a crisis of values that is now threatening the European Union itself. #Quote by George Soros
Presidential quotes by Enrique Pena Nieto
#106. The coalition is a model that has no place in a presidential regime such as in Mexico. It fits in parliamentary models, but Mexico has a presidential regime. #Quote by Enrique Pena Nieto
Presidential quotes by James Madison
#107. Every new and successful example of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters is of importance. #Quote by James Madison
Presidential quotes by Ron Brackin
#108. Writing is a solitary occupation, except for Presidential speeches and sitcoms. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Presidential quotes by Ted Gup
#109. One of the things that will probably need to be addressed is in the treatment of history, i.e. the Presidential Papers Act. If they can act with impunity, if they know that what they're doing is not going to see the light of day anytime in their lifetime, if they have the right to withhold information from the public, then presidents are given a vastly freer hand. #Quote by Ted Gup
Presidential quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#110. By mutual respect, understanding and with good will we can find acceptable solutions to any problems which exist or may arise between us. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Presidential quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#111. Every people has a right to choose the sovereignty under which they shall live. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Presidential quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#112. In a new interview, the president discussed the upcoming election. He said that Hillary Clinton is going to do great as a presidential candidate. When asked how Biden would do, Obama said, 'Hillary's going to do great.' #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Presidential quotes by William J. Clinton
#113. The other thing we have to do is to take seriously the role in this problem of ... older men who prey on underage women ... There are consequences to decisions and ... one way or the other, people always wind up being held accountable. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Presidential quotes by Ann Coulter
#114. Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards used to claim that there are "two Americas," the rich and the poor. If Democrats have their way, there will be two Latin Americas, both of them poor. You're living in one of them right now. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Presidential quotes by Boris Yeltsin
#115. I will not step down, I will not resign, ... I will work to the end of my term in office under the constitution. In the year 2000, there will be presidential elections under the constitution and I will not run in those elections. #Quote by Boris Yeltsin
Presidential quotes by Gillian Flynn
#116. I don't think my father's issue was with my mother in particular. He just didn't like women. He thought they were stupid, inconsequential, irritating. That dumb bitch. It was his favorite phrase for any woman who annoyed him: a fellow motorist, a waitress, our grade school teachers, none of whom he ever actually met, parent-teacher conferences stinking of the female realm as they did. I still remember when Geraldine Ferraro was named the 1984 vice presidential candidate, us all watching it on the news before dinner. My mother, my tiny, sweet mom, put her hand on the back of Go's head and said, Well, I think it's wonderful. And my dad flipped the TV off and said, It's a joke. You know it's a goddamn joke. Like watching a monkey ride a bike. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Presidential quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#117. Americans have always built for the future. That is why we established land grant colleges and passed the Homestead Act to open our Western lands more than 100 years ago. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Presidential quotes by Warren G. Harding
#118. I am not fit for this office and should never have been here. #Quote by Warren G. Harding
Presidential quotes by Ai Weiwei
#119. For all the tough talk about China during the presidential debates, Romney and Obama evaded any mention of China's suspect human rights record, corruption, and rule of law. By not tackling these controversial topics, the candidates are protecting a strategic partnership with China at the expense of essential human values and beliefs. #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Presidential quotes by Ronald Reagan
#120. Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we've ever known. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Presidential quotes by Charles Bukowski
#121. At the age of 25 most people were finished. A whole god-damned nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidate who reminded them most of themselves. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Presidential quotes by William J. Clinton
#122. Americans long to be united. After 9/11, we all just wanted to be one nation. Not a single American on September the 12, 2001, cared who won the next presidential election. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Presidential quotes by George H. W. Bush
#123. The United States is the best and fairest and most decent nation on the face of the earth. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Presidential quotes by David Axelrod
#124. Far be it from me to denigrate Senator McCain's advice on vice presidential nominees. #Quote by David Axelrod
Presidential quotes by Tom Cotton
#125. It's important to remember that whatever the presidential candidates of either party say, they will have to interact with the United States Congress, particularly the Senate, when it comes to crafting policy. #Quote by Tom Cotton
Presidential quotes by Thomas Frank
#126. Presidential legacies are valuable things, too valuable to be left up to historians. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#127. Our alliance is born, not of fear, but of hope. It is an alliance that advances what we are for, as well as opposes what we are against. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by Susan Jacoby
#128. The specific use of folks as an exclusionary and inclusionary signal, designed to make the speaker sound like one of the boys or girls, is symptomatic of a debasement of public speech inseparable from a more general erosion of American cultural standards. Casual, colloquial language also conveys an implicit denial of the seriousness of whatever issue is being debated: talking about folks going off to war is the equivalent of describing rape victims as girls (unless the victims are, in fact, little girls and not grown women). Look up any important presidential speech in the history of the United States before 1980, and you will find not one patronizing appeal to folks. Imagine: 'We here highly resolve that these folks shall not have died in vain; and that government of the folks, by the folks, for the folks, shall not perish from the earth. #Quote by Susan Jacoby
Presidential quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#129. Fellow countrymen: At this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office, there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first ... The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself; and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all. With high hope for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured ... #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Presidential quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#130. Mankind is made up of inconsistencies, and no man acts invariably up to his predominant character. The wisest man sometimes acts weakly, and the weakest sometimes wisely. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield
Presidential quotes by Miranda Kenneally
#131. As a kid, I had the worst mile time ever. Our gym teacher made us run the mile a few times a year for something called the Presidential Fitness Test. I'd huff and puff and wonder why the hell President Bush cared how fast I could run laps around the playground. I always came in dead last. #Quote by Miranda Kenneally
Presidential quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#132. I am glad to see that a system of labor prevails under which laborers can strike when they want to. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Presidential quotes by John Hodgman
#133. The very idea that there is no truth, but only the filter of narrative through which truth is invented is something I learned at the feet of the most leftist professors at Yale and am learning again from Sarah Palin during the Vice Presidential debate, and I find that very disorienting. #Quote by John Hodgman
Presidential quotes by Conan O'Brien
#134. It's starting to look like Donald Trump may be a serious presidential candidate. If you're in my line of work, Trump running for president for real is the greatest thing that has ever happened. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Presidential quotes by James A. Garfield
#135. If the power to do hard work is not a skill, it's the best possible substitute for it. #Quote by James A. Garfield
Presidential quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#136. To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against the liberty of conscience, which is one of the foundations of American life. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Presidential quotes by Thomas Gilovich
#137. Inside accounts of Presidential advisory groups make it clear that the failure to express dissent can have direct, immediate, and severe consequences ... Because so much disagreement remains hidden, our beliefs are not properly shaped by healthy scrutiny and debate. The absence of such argument also leads us to exaggerate the extent to which other people believe the way we do. Bolstered by such a false sense of social support, our beliefs strike us as more resistant to subsequent logical and empirical challenge. #Quote by Thomas Gilovich
Presidential quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#138. Pope Francis said the use of contraception could be justified in regions hit by the Zika virus; a stance that could reignite a debate over the church's prohibition of the use of condoms to stop the spread of the AIDS virus. The pope also criticized Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as 'not Christian' for his immigration stance, and broke with his predecessors by suggesting that Catholic lawmakers are free to vote for same-sex marriage and civil unions if they want to. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Presidential quotes by Andrew Johnson
#139. Honest conviction is my courage; the Constitution is my guide. #Quote by Andrew Johnson
Presidential quotes by Ben  Rhodes
#140. As we headed into the final year of the Obama presidency, we inhabited two distinct worlds. In one, we'd achieved a global climate change agreement, the Iran deal was being implemented, the economy was growing, twenty million people had signed up for healthcare, and Obama's approval rating was rising. In another, Republican presidential candidates were painting a picture of a dystopian nightmare of crime, rampant immigration, ISIL terrorism, and wage stagnation in America. Because the two realities were so far removed from each other, and because Obama wasn't running, it was hard to do anything but put our heads down and focus on what we could get done. #Quote by Ben Rhodes
Presidential quotes by Robert E.Lee
#141. The consolidation of the states into one vast empire, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it. #Quote by Robert E.Lee
Presidential quotes by Jimmy Carter
#142. I will never lie to you. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Presidential quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#143. Most people enjoy 'potato-chip news' from time to time - to track a presidential election or the Oscars. However, some are particularly drawn to material that makes them feel shocked, frightened, insecure, or indignant, and that's what potato-chip news often provides. #Quote by Gretchen Rubin
Presidential quotes by Mary Cheney
#144. The vice presidential candidate tends to be a bit of an afterthought. #Quote by Mary Cheney
Presidential quotes by Conan O'Brien
#145. Last night's vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin drew much higher ratings than the presidential debate. Did you know that? Yeah. Yeah, Biden attracted viewers who enjoyed his previous debate appearances, and Palin attracted viewers who enjoyed the movie 'Fargo.' #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Presidential quotes by Jodi Picoult
#146. One Easter, when she heard the priest say He is risen, she found herself standing up from the pew and walking out the cathedral door. She left the order, dyed her hair pink, and hiked the Appalachian Trail. It was somewhere on the Presidential Range that Jesus appeared to her in a vision, and told her there were many souls to feed. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Presidential quotes by Brian Williams
#147. Lately even the harshest critics of President Bush have been forced to admit maybe he's right about freedom's march around the globe. What if we are watching an example of presidential leadership that will be taught in American schools for generations to come? It's an idea gaining more currency. #Quote by Brian Williams
Presidential quotes by Barack Obama
#148. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. #Quote by Barack Obama
Presidential quotes by Josh Gad
#149. I met Jon Lovett, who was just coming off of three years of being a presidential speech writer and had just arrived here to be a comedy writer in Hollywood. I thought he was super green, in terms of this world, but he knows so much about the world that we're attempting to write about. #Quote by Josh Gad
Presidential quotes by Conan O'Brien
#150. In an interview, former vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan said he does not have a racist bone in his body. However, he admitted he has three sexist bones and his spine is homophobic. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Presidential quotes by Gore Vidal
#151. When the Presidential virus attacks the system there is a tendency for the patient in his fever to move from the Right or the Left to the Center where the curative votes are. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Presidential quotes by John Dean
#152. We are all encouraged that Bush appears, really for the first time in his experience on the stage of presidential politics, relaxed. His comfort is our comfort. #Quote by John Dean
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#153. But however close we sometimes seem to that dark and final abyss, let no man of peace and freedom despair. For he does not stand alone. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#154. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign announced that it raised over $1.5 million in the 24 hours after he announced his bid. Meanwhile, a 12-year-old on Kickstarter just raised $7 million in five minutes after announcing his idea for juice box water guns. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Presidential quotes by Benjamin Harrison
#155. I pity the man who wants a coat so cheap that the man
or woman who produces the cloth will starve in the process. #Quote by Benjamin Harrison
Presidential quotes by George F. Will
#156. He [Barry Goldwater] was called "the cheerful malcontent." It takes a rare and fine temperament to wed that adjective with that noun. His emotional equipoise was undisturbed by the loss of 44 states as a presidential nominee. Perhaps he sensed that he had won the future. We
27,178,188 of us
who voted for him in 1964 believe he won, it just took 16 years to count the votes. #Quote by George F. Will
Presidential quotes by David Horowitz
#157. If we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday at a time of presidential inaugurals, this is thanks to Ronald Reagan who created the holiday, and not to the Democratic Congress of the Carter years, which rejected it. #Quote by David Horowitz
Presidential quotes by George Ayittey
#158. When Uganda got debt relief in 1999, the first item President Museveni bought was a presidential jacket for himself. #Quote by George Ayittey
Presidential quotes by Jackson Katz
#159. During his runs for the GOP presidential nomination, Mitt Romney has done a good job of mimicking Reagan's anti-government diatribes and 'better days ahead' rhetoric. #Quote by Jackson Katz
Presidential quotes by Bob Hope
#160. The Governor has no presidential aspirations. In fact he just made a tour of 43 states just to tell them he's not running for anything. #Quote by Bob Hope
Presidential quotes by Chris Christie
#161. I have a job to do ... If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. #Quote by Chris Christie
Presidential quotes by Charles Murray
#162. Many of the members of the new upper class are balkanized. Furthermore, their ignorance about other Americans is more problematic than the ignorance of other Americans about them. It is not a problem if truck drivers cannot empathize with the priorities of Yale professors. It is a problem if Yale professors, or producers of network news programs, or CEOs of great corporations, or presidential advisers cannot empathize with the priorities of truck drivers. It is inevitable that people have large areas of ignorance about how others live, but that makes it all the more important that the members of the new upper class be aware of the breadth and depth of their ignorance. #Quote by Charles Murray
Presidential quotes by Mark Sanford
#163. Um, yeah. For instance, take, you know, take, for instance, the issue of -- I'm drawing a blank, and I hate it when I do that, particularly on television.
-- potential McCain VP candidate Mark Sanford, asked on CNN to name differences in economic policy between Bush and McCain #Quote by Mark Sanford
Presidential quotes by Miriam
#164. I do not subscribe to the school of thought that I am leading the presidential polls because of my beautiful legs. #Quote by Miriam
Presidential quotes by Joe Biden
#165. It should be heart-breaking to every American that we have a frontrunner in the presidential race that suggests there will be a religious test for anybody who wishes to come to our shores. #Quote by Joe Biden
Presidential quotes by Hillary Clinton
#166. A political life, I've often said, is a continuing education in human nature, including one's own. My involvement on the ground floor of two presidential campaigns and my duties as First Lady took me to every state in our union and to seventy-eight nations. In each place, I met someone or saw something that caused me to open my mind and my heart and deepen my understanding of the universal concerns that most of humanity shares. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Presidential quotes by Paula Poundstone
#167. I have terrible short-term memory loss, which I like to think of as Presidential eligibility. #Quote by Paula Poundstone
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#168. I have said that control of arms is a mission that we undertake particularly for our children and our grandchildren and that they have no lobby in Washington. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by Franklin Pierce
#169. There is nothing left to do but get drunk. #Quote by Franklin Pierce
Presidential quotes by Jack Nicholson
#170. Believe it or not, I supported Richard Nixon on the issue of presidential privilege. How could anyone conceive of being the president of the United States and think that every single thing that you say or do can become a part of the public record? It just seems so stupid to me. #Quote by Jack Nicholson
Presidential quotes by Amy S. Greenberg
#171. NO POLITICIAN COULD devote as many evenings to poker and whiskey as had Henry Clay and expect a decorous presidential campaign. #Quote by Amy S. Greenberg
Presidential quotes by Jim Hunt
#172. In creating superdelegates, the Democratic Party recognized the expertise that its top holders of public office have gained by running for office themselves. They are experts at winning. They know the issues. They are in a unique position to evaluate presidential candidates. #Quote by Jim Hunt
Presidential quotes by Recep Tayyip Erdogan
#173. My legal bond with the A.K.P. may have ended the day I took the presidential oath of office, but my bonds of love have never ended and never will. #Quote by Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Presidential quotes by Noah Feldman
#174. The administration of George W. Bush, emboldened by the Sept. 11 attacks and the backing of a Republican Congress, has sought to further extend presidential power over national security. Most of the expansion has taken place in secret, making Congressional or judicial supervision particularly difficult. #Quote by Noah Feldman
Presidential quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#175. I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from The Savior of the world is communicated to us through this Book. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Presidential quotes by James K. Polk
#176. With me it is exceptionally true that the Presidency is no bed of roses. #Quote by James K. Polk
Presidential quotes by Andy Greenberg
#177. Vietnam had never been a true civil war. It was a war of conquest, initiated and perpetuated for more than two decades by the United States, fueled by presidential secrecy and lies. It was no catastrophic accident. As Ellsberg wrote, it was simply "a crime. #Quote by Andy Greenberg
Presidential quotes by Ronald Reagan
#178. The United States trades more with the province of Ontario alone than with Japan. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Presidential quotes by Ralph Nader
#179. No presidential candidate should visit Las Vegas without condemning organized gambling. #Quote by Ralph Nader
Presidential quotes by Alfie Kohn
#180. Many of our elected officials have virtually handed the keys to our schools over to corporate interests. Presidential commissions on education are commonly chaired by the executives of large companies. #Quote by Alfie Kohn
Presidential quotes by Rachel Maddow
#181. You may never have heard of Joseph Overton and his proverbial window but you most certainly have heard the Republican presidential campaign in 2015 year not just flinging the window open but shattering all its glass. #Quote by Rachel Maddow
Presidential quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#182. As the American Library Association presciently concluded in their 1989 report Presidential Committee on Information Literacy, students must be taught to play an active role in knowing, identifying, finding, evaluating, organizing, and using information. #Quote by Daniel J. Levitin
Presidential quotes by Jerry Falwell
#183. Nothing will motivate conservative evangelical Christians to vote Republican in the 2008 presidential election more than a Democratic nominee named Hillary Rodham Clinton - not even a run by the devil himself ... I certainly hope that Hillary is the candidate. She has $300 million so far. But I hope she's the candidate. Because nothing will energize my [constituency] like Hillary Clinton. If Lucifer ran, he wouldn't. #Quote by Jerry Falwell
Presidential quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#184. If American democracy is to remain the greatest hope of humanity, it must continue abundantly in the faith of the Bible #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Presidential quotes by Jimmy Carter
#185. We believe in separation of church and state, that there should be no unwarranted influence on the church or religion by the state, and vice versa. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Presidential quotes by John F. Kennedy
#186. We have all seen these circus elephants complete with tusks, ivory in their head and thick skins, who move around the circus ring and grab the tail of the elephant ahead of them. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Presidential quotes by William Allen White
#187. From 4 to 6 percent of the presidential office is not in administration but in morals, politics, and spiritual leadership . He has to guide a people in the greatest adventure ever undertaken on the planet. #Quote by William Allen White
Presidential quotes by Jay Leno
#188. The New York Times is reporting that back in the '60s, presidential candidate Howard Dean used a letter from a doctor about a back condition to keep himself out of the draft in Vietnam and then spent 10 months skiing. Well it sounds like he's done the impossible. He actually made Bill Clinton and George Bush look like war heroes. #Quote by Jay Leno
Presidential quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#189. The number of American presidential candidates varies with the sunspot cycle and the phases of the moon. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Presidential quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#190. Some points in time cannot flow. Think of those big-ticket moments, the ones you could still recite from fifth grade: your 1492 and Civil Wars, the Titanic and presidential assassinations. These are icebergs, solid and immense, forcing incalculable eddies to swirl around them. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Presidential quotes by Dick Morris
#191. No candidate can win a presidential race advocating gay marriage and opposing the military action in Iraq. #Quote by Dick Morris
Presidential quotes by Martin O'Malley
#192. I think it would be an extreme poverty indeed if there weren't more than one person willing to compete for the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party. #Quote by Martin O'Malley
Presidential quotes by James Taranto
#193. Because of racism, he can't govern effectively' is not a great argument for re-election. #Quote by James Taranto
Presidential quotes by Randy Olson
#194. This is the dilemma of science-think and yet again a situation in which scientists simply shouldn't be such scientists. Bring in the professionals, and trust them when they tell you to invest in communication. It may be frustrating and seem like a frivolous waste of resources, but what's the alternative strategy - to assume that people are rational, thinking beings? There's a famous quote by Democratic presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson, who heard a woman shout to him that all the thinking people of America were with him. He replied, "That's not going to be enough, Madam; I need a majority of the public. #Quote by Randy Olson
Presidential quotes by Frank Rich
#195. My particular historical vantage point is a product of my upbringing as that odd duck, a native Washingtonian whose parents were not in government. The first presidential transition of my sentient lifetime, Kennedy's, I remember vividly. #Quote by Frank Rich
Presidential quotes by Ann Coulter
#196. We can't even expect our immigration officials not to make citizens of convicted felons.1 Tens of thousands of immigrants have been granted citizenship after being convicted of crimes in the United States. And, no, you can't see their names or read about their crimes. A year before the 1996 presidential election, the Clinton White House worked feverishly to naturalize 1 million immigrants in time for Clinton's reelection. Criminal background checks were jettisoned for 200,000 applicants, so that citizenship was granted to at least 70,000 people with FBI criminal records and 10,000 with felony records.2 Murderers, robbers, and rapists were all made our fellow Americans so the Democrats would have a million new voters by the 1996 election. In 2013 alone, the Obama administration released 36,007 convicted criminal aliens with about 88,000 convictions among them - including 426 for rape and 193 for murder.3 They'll soon be your fellow citizens, too. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Presidential quotes by Garry Kasparov
#197. I think that it's a vital moment now for Russian democracy to convince people that it's only our actions, our joined actions and protests that could force Kremlin to reconsider its plans to abolish presidential elections. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Presidential quotes by Zachary Taylor
#198. For more than half a century, during which kingdoms and empires have fallen, this Union has stood unshaken. The patriots who formed it have long since descended to the grave; yet still it remains, the proudest monument to their memory ... #Quote by Zachary Taylor
Presidential quotes by Mark McKinnon
#199. Weary of wily politicians who say one thing and do another, voters and advocacy groups insist presidential contenders commit to the cause du jour in writing, but candidates are foolish to comply. Words matter. #Quote by Mark McKinnon
Presidential quotes by Mark Hamill
#200. I debated in high school! If you told things that weren't true or just made things out of whole cloth, you were penalized. It's too bad they don't apply the same standards to presidential candidates as they do to high school students. #Quote by Mark Hamill
