Full transcript after the jump.
I believe experience counts, but it’s not everything. Values, judgment, and the record that I have amassed in my state should also count for something. You know, my wife Hillary gave me a book about a year ago in which the author defined insanity as just doing the same old thing over and over again and expecting a different result. We have got to have the courage to change. Experience is important, yes, I’ve gotten a lot of good experience in dealing with ordinary people over the last year and a month. I’ve touched more people’s lives and seen more heartbreak and hope, more pain and more promise, than anybody else who’s running for president this year. We need a new approach. The same old experience is not relevant, and you can have the right kind of experience and you can have the wrong kind of experience. Mine is rooted in the real lives of real people, and it will bring real results if we have the courage to change.
