Anchor of the
CBS Evening News
"The new Republican majority in Congress took a big step today on
its legislative agenda to demolish or damage government aid programs,
many of them designed to help children and the poor."
-- March 16, 1995 CBS Evening News.
"Democrats and Republicans in Congress late today came close to
actual physical blows over proposed cuts in Medicare. That's the
separate U.S. government health care coverage for 37 million older
Americans of all income levels. There's no doubt that Medicare spending
will be cut. The question is how much and for how many."
-- September 20, 1995.
"This is just for starters on a tough week ahead for President
Clinton and his agenda. From another offensive wave on Whitewater to a
sweeping rollback of federal regulations on health, safety, and the
environment, it's a political carpet-bombing attack, wall to wall,
House to Senate."
-- July 17, 1995.
"If we could be one-hundredth as great as you and Hillary Rodham
Clinton have been in the White House, we'd take it right now and walk
away winners...Thank you very much and tell Mrs. Clinton we respect her
and we're pulling for her."
-- Via satellite to President Clinton about his new on-air partnership with Connie Chung at a CBS affiliates meeting, May 27, 1993.
"This woman has gotten a very bad rap, Hillary Clinton. It is true
that she's smart. She didn't go to school just to eat her lunch."
-- During CBS News 1992 election night coverage.
"President Clinton will outline his version of a plan he says will
balance the federal budget in ten years without what Mr. Clinton sees
as a radical and extremist Republican plan to gut programs that help
the old, the young, and the poor in order to bankroll tax giveaways to
the rich. Republicans, of course, see it a different way."
-- Before CBS News coverage of President Clinton's budget address, June 13, 1995.
