I now announce myself as candidate for the Presidency. I anticipate criticism but however unfavorable I trust that my sincerity will not be called into question.
I was the first candidate to come out against this war, spoke at every anti-war march.
One of the problems with a candidate like Bob Kennedy, and his brother before him, was that people assumed they didn't need contributions.
Anyway, I just haven't been able to find any humanity in any Republican candidate ever in my entire life.
Humor is very very risky, particularly for a candidate, unless he's been in so long that it just doesn't matter, and he's not running for president. But it's just that people are so sensitive and so touchy, and you're just going to upset somebody without ever realizing it.
He has selected from a group of overwhelming candidates. This candidate was nominated to the Supreme Court because of his extremely overwhelming qualifications.

That simple truth is that a libertarian presidential candidate isn't going to win anyway, not in 2004, not in 2008, not in 2012.

Basically what they're saying is, if you want to be on TV, if you want to be a credible candidate, you've got to buy ads. And if you're not buying ads, you're not a credible candidate, we don't cover you.
I'm not sure a candidate ever feels his message is getting out.
I also do not like the idea of soft money, these issue ads - people don't know where the money is coming from, millions and millions of dollars outside of the control of a candidate - there's no accountability.
The Manchurian Candidate was the most important movie I was in, let's face it.
With 500 channels and the Internet available, you'd think a candidate could get the word out.
When Lynn officially became a candidate... we thought that he might put a stop to saying 'I'm just here to listen' and actually tell us what he's actually thinking.
If you had found the right candidate in 2000 or 2004, and you could have put that man or woman, given them ballot access in September of the election year, they could have won the election.
We'd all like to vote for the best man but he's never a candidate.
We'd all like t'vote for th' best man, but he's never a candidate.
Vote Smart has sent out thirty thousand questionnaires to every candidate running for office.
Actually, Governor Bush last week was so generous and gracious in his comments and wished me well and said I would be a formidable candidate.
I have submitted the resignation of the government, and I have declared that I will not be a candidate to head the next government.
I'm not sure Lincoln would fare well if he were a presidential candidate today.
I don't want to be disrespectful of the president of the United States, but as a political person, one of the things I appreciated about this president, in the past year especially, is he is a fantastic candidate.
George W. Bush is not only a great president he was a great candidate.
I consider myself an excellent candidate... because I care.
