I had been in so many towns and cities in America with John Kennedy, but I was not with him in Dallas, Texas, on November 21, 1963.
The death of JFK to the resignation of Richard Nixon marked a great turning point in American life.
American people simply will not countenance being lied to by their own President.
The Gulf War is responsible for the huge and horrifying rise in Islamic terrorism.
America Held Hostage won 24 Emmys for ABC News, but someone forgot to include my name on the list of people responsible for the show.
The day I became press secretary to the President of the United States, I was in an entirely different world from the one I'd been in the day before.
President Kennedy was a voracious reader and was forever coming up with fascinating bits of information.
I was one of the first people to learn that Jackie was going to marry Aristotle Onassis.
He's the president of the United States. He's got to work 14 to 16 hours a day, run foreign and domestic policy. If he's got time for mistresses after all that, what the hell difference does it make?

One of the problems with a candidate like Bob Kennedy, and his brother before him, was that people assumed they didn't need contributions.

Whole generations have forgotten history.
Believe me, as one who has seen a number of international crises firsthand, they cannot be handled without an understanding of history.

The things that stand out are often the oddities.
A lot of people criticize the primaries, but I think they are absolutely essential to the education of the President of the United States.
A funny thing happened on the way to the election - I got to the Senate first.
I lost two of the greatest men I've ever known to assassination - and a son to suicide.
I am not very introspective.
I've had at least my share of tragedy, but I have had far more than my share of happiness.
I may be plucky, but I am not stupid.
