I've thought about it, not a lot, but I thought my relationship with Congress - the Democrats and Republicans - would help me get some things done. Not everything, but at least they'd be willing to try.
I will seek the presidency with nothing to fall back on but the judgment of the people of the United States, and nowhere to go but the White House or home.
Think I'll win. Could be big.
I really thought, with my background growing up, and my service, and all that, I thought it would be enough for the presidency. But... It sure was enough when I ran for Congress.
