Address Delivered at the Testimonial Dinner for Lieutenant Governor Patrick J. Lucey of Wisconsin

August 15, 1965


And as long as America must choose, that long will there be a need and a place for the Democratic Party. We Democrats can run on our record but we cannot rest on it. We will win if we continue to take the initiative and if we carry the message of hope and action throughout the country. Alexander Smith once said, “A man doesn’t plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity.” Let us continue to plant, and our children shall reap the harvest. That is our destiny as Democrats.
