Well, that's weird that you knew who he was. I wasn't saying that you hadn't heard of him and I certainly was trying to diminish what you said. But, here in Ohio, I and everyone I know, had never heard of the guy. When it became primary time and his name came up, I actually had to google the guy. So, when I think of a prominent national figure, I think of someone I wouldn't have to google. Hillary fits that mold because of Bill. I follow news and national news, but besides that speech, I had never heard of what he had done or what he stood for. That's what I meant by asking you about being a prominent national figure. No disrespect intended.
And, BTW, you just did that split quote thing. Could you PM me and tell me how you did it. All I know how to do is quote something fully and then delete what I don't want, while still keeping the "[quote]" at the end.
