Essential party readings III

Unnamed Democratic party boss, as quoted by journalist T. H. White in 1956:
Look, let me explain in terms of my own governor. When I decided to nominate him, I called him in and said, "Today, I'm the boss. But when I nominate you and you're elected, you'll be the boss because you're governor. I'm putting a gun in your hand and you can shoot me with it."
