The quotable Ralph Reed

"Governor George W. Bush is the most compelling and electable conservative candidate for president in a generation. I think conservatives will ultimately unite behind him."

"Let the Democrats be the party of gun control. It helped make us a majority party, and I think it will keep us a majority party."

"I understand why many African-Americans feel the way they do about the Confederate battle flag emblem on their state flags in states like Georgia and South Carolina and elsewhere. But for other Southerners it is a celebration not of slavery or racial oppression, but rather of the distinctive history of their region."

Ralph Reed, Republican political consultant
