In 1965, I marched for equality.
For the first half of my adult life, I was a Democrat.
I think serving your government is the greatest thing in the world.
But we look back now, and we realize the Great Society was not a success.
I think that there will always be a need for Housing and Urban Development.
So, I have the responsibility of making sure that HUD functions and runs well.
And for far too long, the Democrats have had a monopoly on black votes in this country.
And what most people don't understand is the bulk of business in this country is small business.
Progress for black Americans depends on good schools because education is the last great equalizer.
After leaving law school, I intentionally said that I never wanted to hold a job more than six years.
