Creative Quotations from . . .
Carol Moseley-Braun
(1947-____) born on
Aug 16
US politican, lawyer. She was the first black woman to be seated in the U.S. Senate.
         
   
F
It's hard to be the first. It's almost as if I'm subject to a different level of inspection.

R
I've always maintained that black people and women suffer from a presumption of incompetence. The burdens of proof are different. It just gets so tiresome.
A
Defining myself, as opposed to being defined by others, is one of the most difficult challenges I face.
N
If I lose, I'm going to retire from politics, practice law, and wear bright leather pants.
K
All I really want to be is boring. When people talk about me, I'd like them to say, "Carol's basically a short Bill Bradley." Or, "Carol's kind of like Al Gore in a skirt."
