Quote of the day.

"Honorable people can certainly agree to disagree. However, here today I accept a second oath. I pledge to walk in the shoes of my colleagues and refrain from name-calling or the questioning of character. It is easy to quickly sink to the lowest form of political debate. Harsh words lead to headlines, but walking this path is not a victimless crime. This great House pays the price. So, at this moment, I begin my tenure in this Chamber, uncertain of what history will say of my tenure here."

--Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH), in her first speech as a Member of the House of Representatives, September 9, 2005.


I know this is old news, but I just saw that quote and couldn't resist.
