“8 years ago, I said it was time to change the tone of our politics. In hindsight, I clearly should have been more specific.”
“I love Joe Biden” “I just want to thank him for being a great friend” “For not shooting anybody in the face”
“Next year someone else will be standing here. It’s anyone’s guess who she will be”

On Donald Trump he said he would be good at closing Guantanamo because he has experience of “running waterfront properties into the ground.”
