Quotes from the Festival Yesterday:

"[Reporters] are trying to avoid taking sides in politics. That gets them in trouble. But the good thing is that in elections, in the long run each party wins about half the time. So you are naturally being neutral if you are telling the truth—basically, being honest about who's going to win at a given time. [But] that doesn't mean each election is 50-50." —Nate Silver

"The biggest barrier to problems is incrementalism. This country is inspired by bold visions." —John Bridgeland

"Shakespeare once said, 'Hell hath no fury than a bunch of alpha women pissed off at the slow pace of cancer research.'" —Katie Couric
