Pop Quiz--Memorable Quotes From Democrats

Today's pop quiz is a match test. All you have to do is match the famous Democrat with his or her quote. Please post your answers in the comments.

Who said:

"Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country."

"You know that being an American is more than a matter of where your parents came from. It is a belief that all men are created free and equal and that everyone deserves an even break."

"(T)he American people have a right to know. It is not just Washington insiders that are part of the debate that has to take place with respect to how we're going to shift our foreign policy."

"We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."

"You can think big, but remember, you shouldn't always say everything you think if you're running for president, because it has consequences around the world."

Here are answers in no particular order, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Franklin Roosevelt. I will match the authors to his or her quote in the comments thread at the end of the day.

Bonus: This quote is too good not to share.

"My choice early in life was either to be a piano-player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to tell the truth, there's hardly any difference."
