I was thinking of how Hillary Clinton might express herself about some of the same things that Martin Luther King, Jr. did. Here is just a sample of the possibilities. What quotes come to your mind, and how might Hillary Clinton turn them into something more practical?
- “I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.”
- “I don’t have a dream. No sense having dreams folks. Let’s be practical about what is possible.”
- “I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land.”
- “I’ve looked down from the mountaintop. Believe me, there is no promised land for you little folk.”
- “On some positions, cowardice asks the question, is it expedient? And then expedience comes along and asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? Conscience asks the question, is it right?
“There comes a time when one must take the position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.”
- “If the other side won’t accept it, then don’t even think about it for now.”
