FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: We cannot be discouraged by a Supreme Court decision that said we don't need this critical provision in the Voting Rights Act because, look at the states. It made it harder for African-Americans and Hispanics and students and the elderly and the infirmed and poor working folks to vote.
What do you know? They showed up, stood in line for hours and voted anyway, so obviously we don't need any kind of law. But a great democracy does not make it harder to vote than to buy an assault weapon.
