I was well known to African Americans before Bill Clinton discovered me. He was like Christopher Columbus riding up on something he didn't understand.

One told me that he would go down the hall to confer with his division chief face to face rather than discuss an issue on the telephone.
The thing about looking back over Clinton's presidency, and probably anybody's presidency, is that when you look back, the events all line up in a way that makes sense. At the time, you don't know where it's going.

In 2008, as a matter of fact, I had people accusing me of being a Senator Obama supporter because I wouldn't slam him.
