I have never left another senator out to dry. Never.
Except for the title 'father,' there is no title, including 'vice president,' that I am more proud to wear than that of United States senator.
If a senator calls me up and asks me what should we do in Iraq, I'm happy to talk to him.
So, the point I'm making is, we are not going to cut spending in Washington if we think it's the job of every congressman and senator is to pave local parking lots and build local sewer plants. These parochial interests are getting in the way of the national interests.
McCarthy had ten years in the House of Representatives, only two terms as a senator. What did he pass? Are there any bills or any piece of legislation that he's identified with? Not at all.
The fact is that we wouldn't be in Iraq if it weren't for Democrats like Senator Kerry.
When you're told to go brief a United States senator on a covert operation, you go do it. And you trust the information isn't going to leak.
I've always thought Anne-Marie Slaughter would make a fantastic United States Senator or something. She's a real intellectual, but she's got enormous communicative skills and she's got government experience. The thing that drives me slightly crazy is the way we think about intellectuals as wooly, hopeless, arrogant, self-deceived, incapable.
As a Senator I am opposed to duelling. As Ben. Wade, I recognize the code.
Benjamin F. Wade
I supported Pat Toomey when he ran in 2010. I gave him money in September of 2009 because I wanted him to be the U.S. senator. I personally contributed my own money.
At that time a senator who was on the Joint Committee of Atomic Energy said rather quietly, 'You know, we're having a little problem with waste these days.' I didn't know what he meant then, but I know now.
David R. Brower
It took a little over a decade to build a coalition strong enough to beat the insurance companies, but in 1990, then Senator Tom Daschle and I passed a law regulating the private market for supplemental Medicare insurance policies.
As a governor and senator, John Chafee set the standard for honesty and decency that the rest of us on our best days could only dream to emulate.
I think it's unconscionable for a Senator from Massachusetts to come down here and tell the people of Florida what's right for them. It's arrogant and irresponsible.
I had a white senator call me a rag head, and I had an African-American legislator call me a conservative with a tan.
When President Obama was in the Senate, when he was a U.S. senator, he voted against raising the debt ceiling. And he said it was a lack of leadership that had brought us to this point.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
Do you honestly think that if Senator Santorum becomes president, we're going to get rid of contraceptives?
As a senator from the only true swing district in the Texas Senate, I've been targeted by the GOP for my outspoken criticism of their extremist attacks on public education and voting rights, to name just two examples.
I just know that I'm innovative. I'm a quick thinker... In Washington, I just want to be a senator who finds a way to drive change and not figure out a way to conform.
I believe being a good senator requires two things. Number one, acumen. Number two, interest.
Far be it from me to denigrate Senator McCain's advice on vice presidential nominees.
The election of Senator Barack Obama brought jubilation across Africa, where millions celebrated him as 'one of their own.'
On issues carrying as much emotional freight as race - and there aren't many - a U.S. senator needs to speak with care and consistency. Otherwise, he could find people speaking at his own retirement tribute.
My first meeting as a senator, my first day, they were already talking about the next election. Part of that's the permanent campaign, part of that's a word I've been using more frequently, 'tribal.' Our politics has become tribal: It's us versus them.
I think I can speak for every Senator, saying that he or she ran for the Senate because we want to help make this a better place; that is, we want to help our States and help America.
