It was either we weren't going to have health care and not care about woman. They wanted small government but government that didn't care about which didn't care about your personal life which was crazy," "When he came out was nice but when he came back on stage and it was everybody. The vice president, members of his cabinet and such. And then he had a moment when everybody was off the stage and he came back out and I saw tears in his eyes and it gave me goose bumps and it made feel proud and connected."
