Know which officials are voted into office and which are appointed, and by whom.
Marilyn vos Savant
I want to say this about my state. When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years either.
African-Americans who might have disagreed with candidate Obama's left-of-center politics voted for him in 2008 because electing a candidate with brown skin was too historic an opportunity to miss.
Many people who voted for Mr. Obama in the last election did so based on skin color.
A lot of people in 2008 voted for Obama. I did not vote for him. I voted for a third party. But I believed in Obama's promises.
I pay my taxes, but I've never voted and I never will vote as long as the system works the way it does. Even when Obama was running, I wanted to see a woman run! I'd rather see a woman in the White House as opposed to Obama.
I have always voted for who I believed was the best person.
Robert M. Gates
I voted for Obama and I was delighted that he's been elected.
Whether you voted for me or not, going through the Democratic process had made me a better candidate. I am a smarter, better candidate.
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

Today in India there are all sections of people, as the BJP realized when the poor voted them out.
Lalu Prasad Yadav
Obama is a great man who's just beginning to understand the realities. And I'm not just saying that because he reads my books. I would have voted for him anyway.
E. L. Doctorow

Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
My friend Paul Ryan talks about fiscal responsibility, but voted to put two wars on a credit card.
The people who voted for President Obama are just beginning to wake up to exactly what they brought in. The 'change' they envisioned is not the 'change' they have gotten.

Just as the England football manager starts with bells and flags and balloons and ends up reviled, so do prime ministers. Tony Blair - is there anyone more despised now? Gordon Brown - all right, nobody voted for him but, you know... just think of any of them. Margaret Thatcher. John Major. Steve McLaren. Fabio Capello.
I would be open about the fact that, clearly, politicians should be able to speak to each other. David Cameron doesn't seem to accept this, but if the British people have voted then of course you have to try and provide good stable government.
John F. Kennedy
