Quote of the Day (March 16, 2008)

March 16, 2008

Quotemarks

"I am today announcing my candidacy for the presidency of the United States.

"I do not run for the presidency merely to oppose any man but to propose new policies. I run because I am convinced that this country is on a perilous course and because I have such strong feelings about what must be done, and I feel that I'm obliged to do all that I can.

"I run to seek new policies -- policies to end the bloodshed in Vietnam and in our cities, policies to close the gaps that now exist between black and white, between rich and poor, between young and old, in this country and around the rest of the world.

"I run for the presidency because I want the Democratic Party and the United States of America to stand for hope instead of despair, for reconciliation of men instead of the growing risk of world war.

"I run because it is now unmistakably clear that we can change these disastrous, divisive policies only by changing the men who are now making them....

"At stake is not simply the leadership of our party and even our country. It is our right to moral leadership of this planet."

-- Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, Washington, D.C., March 16, 1968
