What do I tell the pilots to do?
Phones rang constantly, as if the White House was conducting some kind of pardon telethon. Barbara Olso
Since the end of the Cold War, Soviet aggression had been replaced by a number of particularly venomous threats, from Timothy McVeigh to Osama bin Laden.
He decided to plunge on with pardons over the department's objections, or where he knew that there would be objections if he had let career prosecutors know what he was doing.
Hopefully, at some point, people will at least credit the Republicans with carrying out their oversight responsibilities and with pursuing a principled course of action even in the face of everyone's short-attention spans.
There is one question that I don't think Gary Condit can answer, and that I think is why we all aimed at Gary Condit, besides the fact that he has a relationship.
We did three run-throughs before we ever got on camera and before I ever met the host of the show,
I think that's going to be an issue: Whether or not voters are going to get more of the same in a Clinton candidacy or whether she really is something unique and has something to offer apart from her husband.
The mainstream media has chosen their candidates and their issues, and they're not the same as the GOP's. They are going to be painted as the bad guys.
Al Gore seems to have found a great political ploy: Picking up whatever issue he is most vulnerable on and championing the cause. Perhaps he will start to champion perjury statutes and obstruction of justice.
Of all presidential perks, the pardon power has a special significance. It is just the kind of authority that would attract the special attention of someone obsessed with himself and his own ability to influence events.
Phones rang constantly, as if the White House was conducting some kind of pardon telethon.
The decision that has to be made was whether it was material, whether he knew he was lying under oath, whether he did it willfully. I think that's required of any prosecutor who is charged with an investigation of this.
We seem to be OK for now _ until they throw us another clink.
I think Gore does have to worry. He is tied to Bill Clinton. We know that there were telephone calls that he made from his office. We know that there were visits to the Buddhist temple.
It's difficult to believe that Al Gore was oblivious to the existing laws. He has to respond at some point.
Mistakes were made is something we heard back in '92, and that has sort of been the Clinton administration's mantra. I can't imagine that Al Gore is going to pick up that statement and carry it through the next election.
From what we've heard about George W., he has a lot issues that he wants to run on. They're positive. They're good. He thinks he's got a good vision for America.
In the mind of Bill Clinton, political considerations outweigh even life-and-death matters of great concern to his own law-enforcement officials, not to mention the nation.
Just remember, it all started with a mouse.
Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.
People often ask me if I know the secret of success and if I could tell others how to make their dreams come true. My answer is, you do it by working.
Many of the things that seem impossible now will become realities tomorrow.
Until a character becomes a personality it cannot be believed. Without personality, the character may do funny or interesting things, but unless people are able to identify themselves with the character, its actions will seem unreal. And without personality, a story cannot ring true to the audience.
Never get bored or cynical. Yesterday is a thing of the past.
It's kind of fun to do the impossible.
Here in Florida we have something special we never enjoyed at Disneyland - the blessing of size. There's enough land here to hold all the ideas and plans we can possibly imagine.
After the rain, the sun will reappear. There is life. After the pain, the joy will still be here.
Disneyland is the star, everything else is in the supporting role.
I definitely feel that we cannot do the fantastic things based on the real, unless we first know the real.
I don't know if it's art, but I know I like it.
Dream, diversify-and never miss an angle.
Movies can and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood.
The insignia meant a lot to the men who were fighting ... I had to do it ... I owed it to them.
We dance, we kiss, we schmooze, we carry on, we go home happy. What do you say? Come on..
If you can dream it, you can do it.
To captivate our varied and worldwide audience of all ages, the nature and treatment of the fairy tale, the legend, the myth have to be elementary, simple. Good and evil, the antagonists of all great drama in some guise, must be believably personalized. The moral ideals common to all humanity must b
In my work, I try to reach and speak to that innocence, showing it the fun and joy of living; showing it that laughter is healthy; showing it that the human species, although happily ridiculous sometimes, is still reaching for the stars.
I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter. With the laugh comes the tears and in developing motion pictures or television shows, you must combine all the facts of life â€” drama, pathos and humor.
