    The average GOP presidential vote in these last five elections was 44.5 percent. In the last three, it was 48.1 percent.

    The brutality of the pace. This was my third presidential campaign and it was a thousand times faster paced than my first one in 2004.

    The ex-Presidential situation has its advantages, but with them are certain drawbacks. The correspondence is large. The meritorious demands on one are large.

    The fact remains that we're running a presidential campaign.

    There is a connection, hard to explain logically but easy to feel, between achievement in public life and progress in the arts. The age of Pericles was also the age of Phidias. The age of Lorenzo de Medici was also the age of Leonardo da Vinci. The age of Elizabeth was also the age of Shakespeare. And the New Frontier for which I campaign in public life, can also be a New Frontier for American art.

    There`s a certain attitude toward being presidential that is now going away and I think the other thing we`re seeing is really a moment where I think Republicans are waking up to the fact that they should have been doing this a lot earlier. They should have been trying to get under Donald Trump`s skin a lot earlier.
