Transcript:There are 5 compelling things on the agenda -- the war and the world, the cities and the nation and the party primaries, and the convention, and the election.
Of these 5 I can give up the last 3. I do not believe we can do all of these things as well as the people are entitled to have them done. Therefore, I am going to pick priorities.
