"You know, I think everyone's a role model in different ways," Priebus told Fox News' Bret Baier before Tuesday's first and only vice presidential debate. "When you look at someone who has built businesses, lost businesses, came back, lived the American dream, a person who sets goals, he's a winner."
"With every word we utter, with every action we take, we know our kids are watching us. We, as parents, are the most important role models. And let me tell you, Barack and I take that same approach to our jobs as President and First Lady, because we know that our words and actions matter. Not just to our girls, but to children all across this country. Kids who tell us, 'I saw you on TV. I wrote a report on you for school.'"Kids like the little black boy who looked up at my husband, his eyes wide with hope, and he wondered: is my hair like yours? And make no mistake about it, this November when we go to the polls: that is what we're deciding. Not Democrat or Republican, not left or right. No, in this election and every election, is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives."
