MARK SHIELDS: “I have to tell you I agree with David, that is awfully good. But he also has a sense of the possibility of America when he says they told me at every turn that I couldn’t do it. They told me that I couldn’t go to college. They told me I couldn’t be a lawyer. They told me I couldn’t ... I’m sure people have told you that in your lives that you weren’t qualified for something. You see the heads nod in the room. And David’s right. I mean I think he’s better than Bill Clinton. I really do.” (PBS NewsHour, January 20, 2004)
