... to salute your leadership in giving our country back its future and its truth.
... For me, this cause stretched across decades; it has been disappointed, but never finally defeated. It was the cause of my life.
... I learned that you will not yield to calls to retreat - that you will stay with the cause until it is won.
... you have also reminded all of us that it concerns more than material things; that what we face is above all a moral issue; that at stake are not just the details of policy, but fundamental principles of social justice and the character of our country.
... I entered public life with a young President who inspired a generation and the world. It gives me great hope that as I leave, another young President inspires another generation and once more on America's behalf inspires the entire world.
