In the first rule of politics, you know, Harry Truman, the buck stops here. Take responsibility. What I've learned over the years is that people will give people in politics a lot of rope if they just take responsibility.
I went to a little liberal-arts college in Missouri called Truman State University.
I am the heterosexual Truman Capote.
For The Truman Show, I worked for a few weeks, do my gig, then I was done.
I have three favorite politicians: Reagan, Truman, and Bobby Kennedy - Bobby for showing remarkable political courage despite being loathed by many on both sides.
Truman Capote was a magical, beautiful writer.

I would like to say that no man ever was given finer cooperation than that given me by President Truman.

We support President Truman's civil rights program.
I would say that President Roosevelt probably was more intimately in touch with the press corps at the White House than President Truman was.

Before Truman Capote, journalism and non-fiction weren't taken very seriously.
