“I’ve been in a very male-dominated business for decades.  I found, particularly early on, that there’s plenty of room for passion, but there’s very little room for emotion.”

“When I was discussing my role with other senior campaign folks, they would say, ‘I know you have four kids, but…’  I said, ‘There’s nothing that comes after the ‘but’ that makes any sense to me, so don’t even try.’  Like, what is the ‘but?’  But they’ll eat Cheerios for the rest of their life?  Like, nobody will brush their teeth again until I get home?  I mean… what is the ‘but?’  And I do politely mention to them that the question isn’t, would you take the job?  The male sitting across from me who’s going to take a big job in the White House.”

“I went home every night to New Jersey – or most nights – and to help with the six-grade math homework or to make breakfast in the morning, just to make sure that that was there.  When I was single and didn’t have children, I used to laugh at this notion of quality time.”

“I think the most important thing for all of us to realize is you have to make the decision and be comfortable with it.  And every woman should be respected for making her own choice.”
