Don't Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow)

 "The Clintons may be polarizing figures and prime Republican fund-raising targets in red-state America, but this week they are homecoming heroes, packing parties with rooms full of old backers, new book readers and - just possibly - Democratic voters who hope some day to give Mrs. Clinton the family's third term."

Speeches to the Democratic National Convention on Monday Night via The New York Times.

Al Gore
"I’m going to be candid with you. I had hoped to be back here this week under different circumstances, running for re-election. But you know the old saying: you win some, you lose some. And then there’s that little-known third category."

Jimmy Carter
"Today our dominant international challenge is to restore the greatness of America based on telling the truth, a commitment to peace, and respect for civil liberties at home and basic human rights around the world."

Hillary Clinton
"Every day now as a mother, as a senator, as an American, I worry about whether we are acting as wisely as we can to protect our country and our people."

Bill Clinton
"We Americans must choose for president -- we've got to choose for president between two strong men who both love their country but who have very different world views: our nominee, John Kerry, who favors shared responsibility, shared opportunity, and more global cooperation, and their president and their party in Congress who favor concentrated wealth and power, leaving people to fend for themselves, and more unilateral action."
