Great Quotes from Democratic Convention

I don't know who compiled there but they're up as a comment on Ben Smith's site. A good compilation:

Gov. David Paterson on John McCain: "If he's the answer, then the question must be ridiculous."

Gov of Arizona, Janet Napolitano: "Barry Goldwater ran for president, and he lost. Mo Udall ran for president, and he lost. Bruce Babbit ran for president, and he lost. For this next election, that's one Arizona political tradition I'd like to see continue."

Gov of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius delivers the line of the century about John McCain: "John McCain's version: There's no place like home...or a home...or a home...or a home...or a home..."

Senator from PA, Bob Casey: "John McCain calls himself a maverick, but he votes with George Bush more than 90% of the time...that's not a maverick, that's a sidekick."

Former Gov of VA, Mark Warner: "This election isn't about liberal versus conservative. It's not about left versus right. It's about the future versus the past. ... In four months, we'll have an administration that actually believes in science. "

Gov of Montana Brian Schweitzer: We simply can't drill our way to energy independence, even if you drilled in all of John McCain's backyards, including the ones he can't even remember.

My Favorite:
Gov of OH, Ted Strickland: Recalling Jim Hightower's quip that George H. W. Bush was born on third base and thought he'd hit a triple, "George Bush started on third base and then stole second, with John McCain cheering him every step of the way."
