南希·吉布斯(Nancy Gibbs)名言

Obama promised a return to competence and confidence and asked the nation to believe again that the government could do big things well. In the end, he got his big thing, a once-in-a-generation revision to the basic social compact, a commitment of health coverage to nearly all Americans. He has yet to prove he can do it well.

奥巴马承诺恢复能力和信心,并要求美国再次相信政府可以做大事. 他尚未证明自己能做好.

America's presidents tend to die young. Maybe it is in the nature of the men who reach such heights, or of the job once they attain it.

美国总统往往会早逝. 达到这种高度的人的天性,或者一旦达到这一高度,就属于工作.

在1960年代和70年代之后,人们对凡人能否担任该国最高职务感到真正的怀疑. 它摧毁了约翰逊,破坏了尼克松,并使福特和卡特不堪重负.

The path of progress cuts through the four-way intersection of the moral, medical, religious and political - and whichever way you turn, you are likely to run over someone's deeply held beliefs.

进步之路贯穿了道德,医学,宗教和政治的四个方面的交汇点,无论您采用哪种方式转向,都可能会碰到一个人的根深蒂固的信念.

We will never know if any other president approached Nixon in paranoia, profanity or potential criminality, since only his conversations were captured, subpoenaed and ultimately released on the front pages of newspapers.

我们永远不会知道是否有任何其他总统以偏执狂,亵渎或潜在犯罪来与尼克松接触,因为只有他的谈话被捕获,传唤并最终在报纸头版上发布.
