Representative Rahm Emmanuel 8/21/2006 CSPAN –

Citizenship is not an entitlement program, it comes with responsibilities.  Everybody, somewhere between the ages of 18-25, will serve three months of basic training and understanding of, in a kind of, civil defense, that universal sense of service will give Americans once again what a sense, what they are to be American and their contribution to a country and a common experience.  If you look at WWII, that was a draft, this is not a draft, it is universal service.  It is not an accident that we started our big march towards civil rights in expanding post WWII because the country came through an experience together.”

BHO @ debate – Who I surround myself with

“Just look at who I associate with.  On economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffet, former fed chairman, Paul Volker.  If I am interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate, Joe Biden or with Dick Luger, the Republic ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations committee or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO.  Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans who have shaped my ideas, who will be surrounding me in the White House.”

In Venezuela, with Chavez, really an incredible revolution-a dramatic revolution-to begin to put in place saying that we’re going to have impact on the people of Venezuela.  The property owners and the folks who were then controlling the media in Venezuela rebelled–worked  frankly with folks here in the US government–worked to oust him.  He came back and had another revolution, and Chavez then started to take the media very seriously in this country.”

Joe Biden 10/19/08 – World will test Obama

“Mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy.  The world is looking.  We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year old senator President of the United States of America.  Remember, I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said.  Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis.  A generated crisis to test the mettle of this guy.”
