Howard Baker Quote

So while I know the President well, I know his family well, I have known them for a long, long time and I count them personal friends, it is my full intention to work through this embassy and to transmit the thoughts and views I have directly through the system. By the way, Secretary Powell and I are great friends. He was National Security Advisor for President Reagan at the same time I was President Reagan's Chief of Staff. So we know each other very well.
