>> governor, a picture of you going to disney land , where else, as a kid. your american dream has been realized. what does it mean to you as a newer generation of politician?

>> you know, it's amazing. my dad's here in the audience, one of nine kids, only one that got past the fifth grade, came here with his pregnant wife. what's amazing to me is he had the confidence, didn't know anybody, went through the yellow pages , calling people, had the confidence he could get a job. he has an accent, not a southern accent . he has an accent. he has lived the american dream . i want my children to have those same opportunities. this is the greatest country in the history of the world .
