1 [from his speech nominating Bill Clinton for the Presidency, New York City, July 15, 1992] I want to clap my hands and throw my fists in the air, cheering neighborhoods where children can be children, where they can grow up and get a chance to go to college and one day own their own home. I want to sing proud songs, happy songs, arm in arm with workers who have a real stake in their company's success - who once again have the assurance that a lifetime of hard work will make life better for their children than it had been for them.
