    “The commission decries hostility and discrimination against immigrants as antithetical to the traditions and interests of the country,” Jordan said. “At the same time, we disagree with those who would label efforts to control immigration as being inherently anti-immigrant. Rather, it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.”

    During Nixon impeachment proceeding:
    “My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total, I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution.”
    “There were tears behind doors and off-camera after the vote from both men and women.”

    True. She didn't feel the need to run for higher-office. She already had power and respect. People stopped what they were doing when she was talking.

    But then her Party started propping-up 2-dimensional putz's like Muskie, Hart, Ted, Carter, Mondale, etc... with the final indignity of nominating Geraldine Ferarro as VP. It's still laughable all these years later.

    At the 1976 Democratic National Convention, Jordan once again captured the public's attention with her keynote address. She told the crowd, "My presence here . . . is one additional bit of evidence that the American dream need not forever be deferred." Jordan had reportedly hoped to secure the position of U.S. attorney general within Jimmy Carter's administration after he won the election, but Carter gave the post to someone else.

    She should have been nominated in his place, he was worthless.
