"I'm not a member of any organized political party.... I'm a Democrat."
"There is only one redeeming thing about this whole election. It will be over at sundown, and let everybody pray that it's not a tie, for we couldn't go through with this thing again.
"So cheer up. Let's all be friends again. One of the evils of democracy is you have to put up with the man you elect whether you want him or not. That's why we call it democracy."
"And, when the votes are counted, let everybody, including the candidates, get into a good humor as quick as they got into a bad one."
"The Democrats and the Republicans are equally corrupt where money is concerned. It's only in the amount where the Republicans excel."
"A politician is not as narrow-minded as he forces himself to be."
"A Republican moves slowly. They are what we call conservatives. A conservative is a man who has plenty of money and doesn't see any reason why he shouldn't always have plenty of money. A Democrat is a fellow who never had any, but doesn't see any reason why he shouldn't have some."
"America has the best politicians money can buy."
