Lori and Jimmy Carter

"She is an extra special person. She is enthusiastic and vivacious and determined and idealistic…very forceful and eloquent. She's been just as enthusiastic on environmental issues or mistreatment of animals…I think this protection of women's rights is a continuation of her interest in things that are innovative and idealistic."

"If there were more Lori Petersons, there would be less sexism."
