Getting elected will bring candidates propelled by the tea party “down to earth,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview on Thursday.
"Well, I've seen a lot of people run for office and say a lot of things, and then when they have the burden of holding office and the responsibility that goes with it," Clinton said, "I've seen them become very sobered, very quickly, about the challenges we face domestically and internationally.”
"You know, nobody said it better than Mario Cuomo, who said, 'You campaign in poetry, and you govern in prose.' Sometimes the poetry can get kind of hot," Clinton added, "and a little over the top, but the prose brings you down to earth."
Clinton spoke in Jerusalem with Christiane Amanpour of ABC’s “This Week,” which will show the interview on Sunday. (Source)
