Transcript When Jesse Speaks, Everyone Listens "Don't let this moment pass. This vote is about more scholarships, it's about more aid, less tuiton and fewer student loans. It's about educating young America. It's about hope." Seizing the opportunity to appeal to young Texas voters, Rev. Jesse Jackson urged UH students to strengthen the tottering structure of this country by voting for Bill Clinton. "We need healing and we need rebuilding. The source of that strength must come from you," said Jackson, who served as a District of Columbia delegate to the Senate and who had twice tossed his hat into the ring for the presidency. In two informal speeches, delivered at the UC Arbor and on the Texas Southern University campus, he stirred up the crowds- -about 200 people at each appearance. Jackson, considered a major force in the Democratic Party, founded The Rainbow Coalition, a group comprised of various ethnicities. The casual slacks and leather jackets he once donned had been replaced by business suits. Many remembered the photograph taken during Martin Luther Kings' funeral procession, which showed a younger Jackson taking his place behind the slain leader's coffin. Jackson did not resist the temptation to discredit President George Bush and Vice President Dan Quayle. "Our families come apart. Once our families' need have been undercut, then they talk down to use about family values," he said. "It's time for a change." In his attack on Republicans, Jackson spoke about what he considered the failures of an anti-big government administration. "Look around us today. The central theme in our country is pain," he said. Ten million Americans are unemployed, one in 10 is on food stamps, plants are closing, jobs are leaving and U.S. government money is used to subsidize the export of jobs out of this country." Jackson also criticized Bush for claiming he was "out of the loop" with regards to the Iran- Contra affair. "Bush knew in detail about Irangate and Iraqgate. He says he was not in the loop, well he's right," said Jackson, preparing the enthusiastic supporters for one of his trademark one liners. "He was not in the loop, he's in the soup and we're going to turn up the hear." As he campaigned on behalf of Clinton, Jackson seemed at ease assuming a role less visible than the roles he had in former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis' and former Vice President Fritz Mondale's campaigns in 1988 and 1984. "Don't make the mistake of saying there's no difference between Clinton and Bush," he told a standing audience assembled at TSU. Rev. Jesse Jackson urged students and other registered voters to elect Bill Clinton (above) for president. Jackson spoke at UH and at Texas Southern University during his visit. Houstonian Photo. __^_ "Bill Clinton stands for raising the minimum wage for working people, he stands for on- site same day (voter) registration; he stand for equal rights and choice for women, universal day care for working women and children, the wealthy paying their fair share of taxes, foreign corporations paying their fair share of taxes, cutting the military budget without cutting defense. "Don't let this moment pass. This vote is about more scholarships, it's about more aid, less tuition and fewer student loans," Jackson told the UH crowd. "It's about educating young America. It's about hope." -Ericka Schiche 332 Academics
