You never pull the trigger until you know you can win.
I have a soft spot for Joe Biden. I like him. But he's dumb as an ashtray.
Obama's the one who never worked a day in his life. He never earned a penny that wasn't public money. How many fund-raisers does he attend every week? How often does he play basketball and golf? I wish I had that kind of time.

I grew up in the era when Dan Rather hated Richard Nixon. He was a newsman, but you knew what his opinion was.
I look for something unique, and I look for people who haven't reached their potential. I think I'm pretty good at developing talent.
I quit politics because I hated it.
