Text Quotes
Yes, Bill Clinton is a big flirt  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) The first time I met Bill Clinton was actually 1988  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) No reporter is flying around in borrowed twin-engine airplanes  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) To compare Whitewater to Watergate is a travesty  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) Clinton had absolutely zero honeymoon, none whatsoever  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) The Obamas have changed the culture of the White House  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) Campaigns often make standing on principle the highest of virtues - and listening to your opponents a sure sign of weakness. It’s the virtual opposite of what it takes to succeed in office. Squaring the circle takes a powerful combination of skills. But presidents who can campaign and compromise are generally the most successful  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) One thing I think is least realistic is that there were five people that made decisions in the fictional ‘West Wing.’ In real life, there are about five million people that weigh in  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) During my years as a press secretary, I developed a powerful internal filter, which worked to strip all things ‘off message’ from my thoughts before they came out of my mouth. It didn’t always work, of course, and I said more than a few things I regretted  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) After I left the White House, I kept a foothold in the business of American politics; as a talk-show host, analyst, commentator, speechmaker, and occasional writer. I was no longer a practitioner, but I was still a partisan, a Democrat, a blue-stater through and through  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) While eschewing emotion - and its companion, vulnerability - Obama should be careful not to sacrifice empathy, the ‘I feel your pain’ connection that sustained Clinton. This connection is the shorthand people use to measure their leaders’ intentions. If people believe you’re on their side, they will trust your decisions  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) On the day I started college in 1979, no woman had ever been on the United States Supreme Court or served as the Speaker of the House. None had been an astronaut or the solo anchor of a network evening news broadcast. Not one had been president of an Ivy League college or run a serious campaign for president  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) Obama seemed poised to realign American politics after his stunning 2008 victory. But the economy remains worse than even the administration’s worst-case scenarios, and the long legislative battles over health care reform, financial services reform and the national debt and deficit have taken their toll. Obama no longer looks invincible  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) I worked for a lot of candidates, in tough campaigns that lost. Most of my candidates lost until Bill Clinton. There was always a point where you look in their eyes and they knew it was over. And there was never that point with Clinton. He never quit. He never gave up  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) No doubt, the White House thinks the American people know Obama’s story. But since the Inauguration, we’ve seen only the president’s present: his perfect family, his Ivy League elegance, his effortless mastery of complex issues. We never see him sweat. And we forget that he ever had to struggle  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) Study after study confirms that even when you control for variables like profession, education, hours worked, age, marital status, and children, men still are compensated substantially more - even in professions, like nursing, dominated by women. No wonder there’s a gender gap  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) President Clinton intentionally created a structure that was a little loose. And one that kept him a little in the center. He didn’t want one person filtering all the information that went to him. He had always operated with a lot of information coming in and a lot of stuff going out  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) In the run-up to the 1992 Democratic convention, Clinton’s campaign realized that voters thought the young governor had a privileged upbringing. They didn’t buy his alleged concern for the middle class  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) A lot of people over time have had this kind of pattern in their relationship with Bill Clinton. You first meet him and you’re overwhelmed by his talent. He’s so energetic and articulate and full of ideas and he calls himself a congenital optimist and that optimism is contagious  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) Exponential growth in access to the Internet, satellite television and radio, cell phones, and P. D. A.’s means that breaking news now reaches virtually every corner of the globe  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) Trying to negotiate getting a couple of kids to watch the same TV show requires serious diplomacy  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) Having a sense of humor has served me more than it has hurt me - just in the sense that it has allowed me to keep my sanity.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) We don’t take credit for our accomplishments. I can’t tell you how many times you’ll say to a woman, ‘Oh God, what you did was so great’, and they say, ‘Really? I didn’t think it was that good.’  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) The thing about looking back over Clinton’s presidency, and probably anybody’s presidency, is that when you look back, the events all line up in a way that makes sense. At the time, you don’t know where it’s going.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) People are inevitably disappointed, because no one’s as good as Bill Clinton’s first impression. Or, he’s done things. He’s disappointed people in a variety of ways. And so then, the fall is hard.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) There are people in the public sector with a range of experiences that have no equivalent in business, but are essential to governing, like keeping a kid in school or helping someone get and hold a job. The value of those skills can’t easily be measured against a bottom line.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t. Hey, it made me a better leader: you have to take a lot of people’s needs into account; you have to look down the road. Trying to negotiate getting a couple of kids to watch the same TV show requires serious diplomacy.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) The dirty little secret is that the pool man, who’s making $30,000 a year, is subsidizing the million-dollar mortgage for the family whose pool he cleans. No wonder people want to get rid of tax breaks for corporate jets.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes) That’s not to say that women’s priorities are better than men’s. Rather, when women are empowered, when they can speak from the experience of their own lives, they often address different, previously neglected issues. And families and whole communities benefit.  (Dee Dee Myers Quotes)
