Well it doesn’t get much more touching than this, folks. Apparently, a trip to Washington D.C. with the Boy’s Nation Program and a hand shake with President John F. Kennedy was enough to convince Clinton to run for public office. It’s as if this event was heaven-sent!
2. When Governor Bill got real at the Democratic Leadership Council (1991)
“Let me tell you something. Family values won’t feed a hungry child, but you can’t raise that hungry child well without them. We need both! […] Those people don’t care about the rhetoric of left and right and liberal and conservative and who’s up and who’s down and how we are positioned. They are real people and they have real problems and they are crying desperately for someone who believes that the purpose of government is to solve their problems and make progress instead of posturing around and waiting for the next election.”
