My father loves his country and is ready to lead it. In my father's gut: integrity.
Despite our differences, we all agree this election and this process are important. And we all agree that all of us are part of a greater American family.
My sister and I are thrilled to be here tonight with you all in Florida, ... and to get this chance to suggest that you get involved in this election and vote -- and hopefully that you vote for our father.
She was a phenomenal mother. And she affected many others, too. So many people have come up to me over the years, even on the campaign trail, to say how much of a difference her books made for them.
I think my dad is this great, wonderful... man with a lot of integrity, who is fighting for things he believes in and is serious in what he wants to see happen and serious in helping people.
There has to be room for people to make mistakes and lead their own lives.
You're blinded by lights and you see all these people who come out, and it's exciting. It's scary and it's exciting all rolled into one.
I was very close to my mother, and her death, which left a gaping hole in my life, has been very difficult for me and my father in a lot of ways.
It was definitely a part of our life. I mean, my mom had both her brothers and her fiancee in Vietnam at the same time, so it wasn't just my dad's story, it was my mom's story too. And we definitely grew up listening to the stories.
But one of the things I learned is that when you fight for something you believe in and you tell the truth and you do your best, you can always hold your head up high and no one can take that away from you.
It wasn't until two or three years ago that I actually learned that in the end he actually did kill someone. But that was a choice that he faced: to kill or be killed.
And I think we created something incredible as a Democratic group, as a platform, as an effort to make a change in the country, and I think we did change this country. And I think we will continue to, and I know that my father is not going to stop fighting.
I think there is a generation gap. I personally look forward to, as our generation becomes the leaders, you are gonna see a change, and I think hopefully gay marriage will be a part of that country.
I have the rare privilege of talking to my dad every night at 10 p.m. and hearing about what he did that day.
