"Question to you, Bob Squier. Have the Republicans pulled a snow job
on the American voters by making them believe Bill Clinton has raised
-- CNN anchor Bernard Shaw on Inside Politics, July 19, 1994.
"What do you say to people who say that you are an extremist, that
you're a right-winger, that you're a nut, that you're a bomb thrower?"
-- To U.S. Rep. Bob Dornan (R-CA) on Inside Politics, April 12, 1995.
"Speaking of shooting, has the tide gone so much against the
National Rifle Association that, at last, you members of Congress will
pass federal hand gun control?"
-- To Senators Bob Dole and George Mitchell, September 7, 1993.
"Very frankly, I am very puzzled by one paragraph, one sentence in
the Vice President's speech on page six. In a very petulant voice, and
listen to the words: he said, `To Governor Clinton I say this: America
is the greatest nation in the world and that's one thing you're not

problems with his staff, he had external problems. There were questions
about his personality, his character, et cetera. But I don't think
anyone can question that this man and his staff sought what was best
for the United States. Tonight, it is clear voters coast to coast in
this country have said `We want a change.' Now Republicans had voted
this Democrat to be virtually, or described him as a monster. My
question is essentially this: Where did he go wrong? What did he do so
wrong that was against the American body politic, considering that he
loves this country as much as you and I do?"
-- To Pat Buchanan during 1994 election night coverage.
