My friends, 10 days ago, with courage and friendship, Al Gore asked me to be his running mate,
I think what we've learned is that when growth occurs, it occurs in the private sector,
Today, we can see with our own eyes what global warming is doing. In that context it becomes truly irresponsible, if not immoral, for us not to do something.
We must do what is necessary do help the victims of this terrible tragedy, but we should make sure it is done in a way that does not add onto the already mounting debt, ... The best way to do this is a combination of cutting spending for less critical programs and canceling the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, who are in the best financial position to help their fellow Americans in this time of crisis.
With all due respect, I think that's like saying that the veterinarian and the taxidermist are in the same business because either way you get your dog back.
My feelings went from concern to grief to anger, and then to embarrassment.
I think Al Gore's going to be himself, ... And I think the important thing ... is that he will clarify the choice that the American people have in what seems to be the closest presidential election in 40 years.
I share the anger, but, ultimately, to govern this country, it takes more than anger. It takes experience. It takes positions that reflect the best values of the American people.
I thought that Gov. Bush's attack on Al Gore, his character and credibility, was very unfair and not what the campaign should be about. In moments of desperation, Gov. Bush turned back to attack President Clinton. His name is not on the ballot, its Al Gore and me against George Bush and Dick Cheney.
to fight for what's right, win this nomination, and defeat George W. Bush next year.
I urge the Bush Administration to rethink its priorities. We can't talk about community values without being prepared to invest in those very same communities.
I am humbled by this nomination and so grateful to Al Gore for choosing me, and I want you to know, I will work my heart out to make sure Al Gore is the next president of the United States.
I've spent the last year listening to Americans, and the state of the union that George W. Bush lives in is very different from the state that most hardworking Americans are living in.
The debate going on between us is really a debate about whether we want to take the Democratic Party back to where it was before Bill Clinton transformed it in 1992, or whether we want to take it forward,
Yahoo Submarine base New London lives, and I think that it will live forever.
This presidential campaign is over and I congratulate Governor Bush and Secretary Cheney and wish them well.
He obviously wouldn't support it if he thought it would do any damage to the American military, ... So, how can two members of the House stand up to the commander in chief and somehow say that they're going to protect the war fighter better than the president or the rest of us are.
He didn't get away with it tonight. Gov. Bush tried a lot of the stuff that he has gotten away with in the campaign so far, and Al Gore was right there on target with the facts. The fact is that it is Governor Bush who's overspending the projected surplus, and Al Gore is staying within the surplus.
But I wouldn't say it's going to be a runaway by any means, ... Larry King Live.
When you are asking the American people to support you for president, you have to be able to take a clear position for what you think is right for the country and stick with it, have the guts to stick with it.
How can we teach our children that every vote counts if we are not willing to make a good-faith effort to count every vote

It's just the worst kind of message to kids. They can be dangerous to your children's health.
If we're for middle-class tax increases, if we send a message of weakness and ambivalence on defense, if we go back to big government spending, if we're against trade and for protectionism -- which never created a job -- we don't deserve to run the country, ... Fox News Sunday.
Democrats have to embrace the Clinton legacy or reject it, ... He's going to lay out the case for building on the legacy and talk about how he's the only candidate who's actually capable of building on it. He'll identify the key policy elements that made Clinton Clinton, including recognizing the importance of trade and tax cuts.
