ABC News reporter; panelist
on Inside Washington

"The Republicans have no shame at all. Bob Dole, for example, bailed out the Reagan administration in 1982 by restoring a lot of the tax money that had been lopped off. We'd probably have a five-times-higher deficit otherwise, and this `Contract with America' is nothing but gimmicks and silly stuff, and nobody can govern with it."
-- Inside Washington, October 1, 1994.

"I think he ought to be worried about what's going on in the Good Lord's mind, because if there is retributive justice, he'll get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it."
-- Reacting to Senator Jesse Helms' claim that the government spends disproportionately on AIDS research, July 8, 1995 Inside Washington.

"Let me make just one point. I'm for a balanced budget, too, but in American history, every time we've had a major, real drive to balance the budget it has been followed by a huge depression, economic depression."
-- Inside Washington, November 18, 1995.

"In practice, personally, I think it will destroy the future competitiveness and security of the country, in terms of education, infrastructure, and medical practice as we know it today."
-- On the balanced budget amendment, May 13, 1995 Inside Washington.

"I think in some ways this is the natural payback from a Republican Party that has flirted too much with code words and Willie Horton-type ads, and when you incite that kind of feeling, don't be surprised when it comes up and hits you in the face."
-- About racists linked to Pat Buchanan, February 24, 1996 Inside Washington.
