Team Clinton
The Starting Line-Up of the Pro-Clinton
Press Corps

August 1, 1996

Co-host of Dateline NBC

"Hillary Rodham Clinton, here in this studio, she'll be here to talk about her new book, which is really terrific actually..."
-- Substitute hosting Today, January 16, 1996.

"In the book, one of the chapters of the book, you said the most important thing we can give a child is a shovel and I want to ask you to explain that in a second, but you also quote a letter in there that Nelson Mandela wrote to one of his daughters while he was in prison, and I'm paraphrasing a bit, but he wrote that there is no personal misfortune that one cannot turn into a personal triumph if one has the iron will and the necessary skills. You clearly have an iron will, you clearly are skilled. How are you going to turn this personal misfortune into a personal triumph?"

"You think government should do a lot more than it's doing in terms of making children a priority, doing things for kids. We're clearly living in an age where people are anti-government. How do you get across the message that we all need to see everybody's kids as our own, we need to have more programs, the government needs to be more involved?"
-- Questions to Hillary Clinton, January 16, 1996 Today.

"You place the responsibility for the death of your daughter squarely at the feet of the Reagan Administration. Do you believe that they're responsible for that?"
-- To AIDS activist Elizabeth Glaser during 1992 GOP convention.

"Craig, we were talking about family values. That is the theme here. A lot of people are saying, by the Republicans saying that as the theme of their campaign, they're really excluding everybody but the people who fit into the traditional nuclear family, the `Ozzie and Harriet' image...People also want to know where in this big image do people who are single mothers, who are blacks, who are people on welfare, who are homosexuals -- they don't seem to be included in this `family values'!...But they do [feel excluded]!"
-- To Bush adviser Craig Fuller, PBS convention special, August 19, 1992
