Theodore H. White

I'd get into a room and disappear into the woodwork. Now the rooms are so crowded with reporters getting behind-the-scenes stories that nobody can get behind-the-scenes stories.
Theodore H. White

If you make a living, if you earn your own money, you're free - however free one can be on this planet.
Theodore H. White

It was like walking through a field playing a brass tuba the day it rained gold. Everything was sitting around waiting to be reported.
Theodore H. White

Politics in America is the binding secular religion.
Theodore H. White

The best time to listen to a politician is when he's on a stump on a street corner in the rain late at night when he's exhausted. Then he doesn't lie.
Theodore H. White

The flood of money that gushes into politics today is a pollution of democracy.
Theodore H. White

The gusto of one, the indignation of the other; the challenge of the one party, the response of the other; the eloquence and the comedy, the passion and the issues were ours-no other country can provide them.
Theodore H. White

There is no excitement anywhere in the world, short of war, to match the excitement of an American presidential campaign.
Theodore H. White

Those 40 or 50 national correspondents who had followed Kennedy since the beginning of his electoral exertions into the November days had become more than a press corps-they had become his friends and, some of them, his most devoted admirers.
Theodore H. White

When a reporter sits down at the typewriter, he's nobody's friend.
Theodore H. White

When that book came out, it was like Columbus telling about America at the court of Ferdinand and Isabella.
Theodore H. White

When the bus or the plane rolled or flew through the night, they sang songs of their own composition about Mr Nixon and the Republicans in chorus with the Kennedy staff and felt that they, too, were marching like soldiers of the Lord to the New Frontier.
Theodore H. White

With electricity we were wired into a new world, for electricity brought the radio, a "crystal set" and with enough ingenuity, one could tickle the crystal with a cat's whisker and pick up anything.
