“When I watched him [former President Bill Clinton]
at Mrs. King’s funeral, I just have never seen anything like
it....There are times when he sounds like Jesus in the
temple. I mean, amazing ability to transcend ethnicity —
race, we call it, it’s really ethnicity — in this country
and, and speak to us all in this amazingly primordial way.” — MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Hardball, February 28,
Cynthia McFadden: “Last week the campaign launched and effort to showcase
those people — friends, constituents, including many of them
in a new Web site called ‘The Hillary I Know.’” Woman in video: “The Hillary that I know is a
compassionate woman.” Man in video: “The Hillary I know saved my life.”...
McFadden: “As I looked at it, it’s terribly sweet in
so many ways, and yet, it sort of has this Sally Field
quality to it. You know, ‘They like me, they really like
me.’ And I wonder if there’s not a double standard? I don’t
see the guys doing it. Are you judged differently, do you
think, on the personal level?” — ABC’s Cynthia McFadden interviewing Hillary Clinton on
Nightline, December 19, 2007.
“There he [Bill
Clinton] goes again. The man often called the most gifted
politician of his generation is once again at the center of
American politics, taking over the 2008 Democratic campaign.
And he’s clearly loving every minute of it....He lectures
and jokes around and feels your pain and implores you to
believe....It’s so unprecedented, this personal and
political partnership, so fraught with history and Baby
Boomer melodrama. They have already made history, and they
are out to do it again, together, through it all.” — ABC’s Terry Moran after spending the day with Clinton
for a report on Nightline, January 24, 2008.
