We are all socialists now, it seems. John McCain, David Cameron and Gordon Brown attack bankers' irresponsible behaviour and salaries, and call for state intervention in the financial markets. But these calls will not get them elected or re-elected if they are addressed only to the banking sector.
Calling on each molecule one by one? No way. I just told all of them to be quiet - except for a selected few.
I got elected as the mayor of Philadelphia and yes I am black. But my responsibility is to all the citizens of the city.
The very fact that I became mayor in 1977 conveys how you can't figure out what the people will do. Nobody thought I would be elected. When I entered I got four percent of the vote in the first poll, four percent.
I've run for office, and I've stood on street corners, while people walked by me and didn't want to talk to me, and did not think I was a credible candidate. And then four years later, I was nearly elected mayor of San Francisco, so I know what it takes.
The deepest mystery of Twitter is why celebrities and elected officials take part. After all, we all know they can't write their own lines.
I followed the law. Before God, before the law, before the people of the state of Florida who elected me, I know that I followed the law.
On the other hand, we have in Israel, an Israeli government which has been elected by the Israeli people. Their political agenda is not for peace. They are from the camp anti-peace.

Elected presidents are for countries.
I think there are lots of ways to exercise ambition and accomplish things using leadership without going into elected politics. So, categorically, I have no intention of going into elected politics. None.
All politicians should have 3 hats - one to throw into the ring, one to talk through, and one to pull rabbits out of if elected.

I think no one has ever been re-elected with unemployment over 7.6 percent.
