It's really such an honor - and a little overwhelming - to be standing up here in front of all of you.
A lot of amazing people have stood here - in this ballroom, behind this podium.
Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan each came here - to the National Press Club - to announce they were running for president in 1976.
In 1939 Eleanor Roosevelt was the first woman to address the club.
And The Reverend Martin Luther King spoke here in 1962.
Which begs the question - what the heck am I doing here? But for tonight, let's just go with it.
