"Now, for the third time, a new century is upon us, and another time to choose. We began the 19th century with a choice, to spread our nation from coast to coast.
We began the 20th century with a choice, to harness the Industrial Revolution to our values of free enterprise, conservation, and human decency.
Those choices made all the difference. At the dawn of the 21st century a free people must now choose to shape the forces of the Information Age and the global society, to unleash the limitless potential of all our people, and, yes, to form a more perfect union."
-From his second inaugural address, Bill Clinton (1993-2001)
