The How We Adore Clinton-Gore Award


“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, 2007.

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.
