"Just Stand There And Look Pretty, John"

Spoken by Hillary Clinton to John Edwards, on the Senate floor. Daniel Aronstein forwards the old Howard Fineman Newsweek article that has the quote.

When she [Hillary] wanted prime time – and lots of it – to explain in a lengthy floor speech why she was backing Bush on Iraq, Clinton asked Byrd to give her a chunk of his time. He happily agreed. When the hard-charging and Hollywood-handsome Sen. John Edwards rushed to the floor at the last minute and asked to speak, Democratic leaders had no time left to give him. Clinton couldn’t restrain a triumphant grin at the plight of a clear rival – in fact, one who is seeking the 2004 nomination. She spoke to him in a near shout – loud enough for the galleries to hear.

I wanna live forever...
