Quote For The Day

"I saw a Gallup poll today -- I saw the results of it, anyway -- that said that Barack Obama, at this very moment, is exactly where [John] Kerry was at this point with white voters as well as with black voters. Now, what does that mean? That means, if he maintains that, and he does it in a state like Colorado, that's the difference between winning and losing. Any one of those states -- Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona -- that had been carried by Kerry would have delivered the presidency. Not to mention these other states -- Virginia, for instance. If you look at the white vote that Obama got in Virginia -- it was extraordinary. And the same thing, over 40 percent, in Indiana -- extraordinary. And so I think that we all really ought to just dial back some of this rhetoric, and let's start talking about what makes us all good Democrats," - House Majority Whip, James Clyburn.
