Trump Donald

I've known Hillary Clinton for a long time. She's trustworthy. She's ready from Day One to assume the office of presidency in the United States. She's qualified and she's ready as compared to, I think, Donald Trump, who has shown his recklessness, and dangerous statements that he's made.

About Almost

What we need is to understand that women won't often apply for a job until they're almost 95% qualified. So they tick the box and say, 'If I can't do it all, I can't be qualified.' Men look at the same job, and as long as they get to about 60%, they'll apply.

Here Fare

My career was one of just taking it step by step. I didn't know how I was gonna fare on the professional circuit when I qualified. I didn't know whether I was gonna make a dime.

Game I Think

I came up in 1941 and I played against men who played in the 1930s. I stayed until 1963 playing against men who will be playing in the 1970s. So I think I can feel qualified to say that baseball really was a great game, and baseball is really a great game, and baseball will always be a great game.

- Stan Musial
