Walt Whitman defended the sacredness of love, the purity of passion - the passion that builds every home and fills the world with art and song.
Walt Whitman is the only great modern poet who does not seem to experience discord when he faces his world. Not even solitude - his monologue is a universal chorus.
I answer that question by saying: 'Why Meg Whitman' which is: I'm not a career politician. I spent 30 years in business. I can tell you that people in California have had it with career politicians: they are done.
I really love poetry. I'm a big E.E. Cummings fan and a big Walt Whitman fan, and I have a big book of poetry.
I have never read a line of Walt Whitman.
Not for a moment, beautiful aged Walt Whitman, have I failed to see your beard full of butterflies.
