Born Tuesday 31 July 1956
I view the experiences that I have had - both the tough ones and the pleasant ones - as gifts.
I don't want to be a senator.
Anybody who knows me knows that I'm no attack dog.
We have drained common sense out of our politics. The more we focus on tactics and games, the more good people check out and give up.
If you are ever going to move beyond where you stand at that moment you have to conjure a picture in your head of where you want to go.
I do identify with St. Patrick, not just in name. He drove the snakes out of Ireland. I intend to drive the snakes out of the State House.
For too long, Democrats have been telling people what they want to hear. I'm going to tell you what I believe.
We need a government that is what we are at our best. Smart, efficient, pragmatic and compassionate.
