Open to Every Race & Religion?

Would any of our politicians dare say theses things today?

"Here is the most quoted paragraph from the speech in 1995:

If there is anyone who has mistakenly attached themselves to our party in the belief that we are not open to every race and religion, then let me recommend to you. Tonight, this hall belongs to the party of Lincoln. And the exits, which are clearly marked, are for you to walk out of as I stand this ground without compromise.... from the article: Bob Dole: "Tonight this Hall belongs to the party of Lincoln."

No doubt many of our elected officials would leave by the exits!
