This Quote of a Lifetime just became Historic

Clinton "Clint" Eastwood, Jr. (82) is US Army vet, an American film actor, director, producer, and a composer. Eastwood has also been an elected politician. In April 1986 he was elected mayor for one term in his home town in California. In 2001 Eastwood was appointed to the California State Park and Recreation Commission by Governor Davis, and reappointed in 2004 by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In his ongoing film career, Eastwood has delivered dozens of memorable lines. Here are just a selected few that are easily remembered:

If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster. - The Rookie; 7 Dec 1990

I have strong feelings about gun control. If there's a gun around, I want to be controlling it. - Pink Cadillac; 26 May 1989

Go ahead. Make my day. - Sudden Impact; 9 Dec 1983


Clint Eastwood's quotation of a lifetime, however, has not only been more recent, it was delivered in a more extraordinary venue and has become instantly historic, especially to a growing population of astute observers. You may read it below, or hear and see it in its entirety on a video here.

See, I never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to the president, anyway.
