    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Madeline Albright: You know what's happening? On Monday, my portrait is going to be hung in the State Department, the first time that a woman is up there with 63 other men.
        Stephen Colbert: Wow! Let me ask you something. You were the first female Secretary of State. Was it hard getting the glass ceiling out of your hair when you smashed through it?
        Madeline Albright: Somehow, there's never enough push to get that glass ceiling broken.

      • Stephen Colbert: Speaking of polling, you think that America is headed in the wrong direction right now?
        Madeline Albright: Definitely.
        Stephen Colbert: Why do you and 81% of Americans think you're so much smarter than the 19% of us who are willing to tow the President's line?
        Madeline Albright: Well, it's very hard to figure out why so many people would not agree with you. I mean, there you are in this great portrait. (Points to Colbert's portrait above faux fireplace)

      • Stephen Colbert: I want America to see how the voters of tomorrow think about these candidates, like Kesly who drew this great picture of a Hillary-Obama combo ticket literally. If this is the dream ticket for the democrats, I say "bring it on." It's going to take more than a win in San Francisco to get the presidency.

      • Stephen Colbert: (Stephen shows Pennsylvania's children artwork.) This one is great. It's by a girl named China. It's of Obama and McCain. Barack is a nice brownish hue and McCain is ghostly white. I believe, for McCain, China used my favorite crayola color-Republican. (Shows picture of a white crayon with "Republican" label.)

      • Stephen Colbert: Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me, unless you throw a dictionary at me.
