1000 Points of Light

"I have spoken of a thousand points of light, of all the community organizations that are spread like stars throughout the Nation, doing good. We will work hand in hand, encouraging, sometimes leading, sometimes being led, rewarding. We will work on this in the White House, in the Cabinet agencies. I will go to the people and the programs that are the brighter points of light, and I will ask every member of my government to become involved. The old ideas are new again because they are not old, they are timeless: duty, sacrifice, commitment, and a patriotism that finds its expression in taking part and pitching in." -- Inaugural Address of George H. W. Bush, January 20, 1989.

"I guess a small-town mayor if sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities." -- Gov. Sarah Palin at the RNC, September 3, 2008.
