Partisan Quotations

Caring for veterans shouldn't be a partisan issue. It should an American one.
Jennifer Granholm

The job of a leader, the job of a governor, the job of a president, is to get the people in the room and bang enough heads together and rub enough arms and cajole enough to have them put the country and the state's greater interest ahead of their own personal partisan interest. That's what we did in New Jersey and that's the model for America.
Chris Christie

Ricardo Montalban
