THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT AT MAJORITY 2000 DINNER Supper Club New York, New York
8:30 P.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everyone. I really came over here just to have a chance to shake hands and say hello, because you were all in the theater so you heard me speak and I don't think you should have to endure two speeches.
I would like to say again how much I appreciate the leadership role that you assumed in making this evening a great success. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. And, again, I want to thank the cast and all the people who put the production on -- I thought it was magnificent.
But, mostly, I came here to thank you for making this a success and for helping Mr. Gephardt and the other members of our congressional leadership here very happy and giving them a chance to have a good November next year.
Thank you, Congressman Engel, Congressman Kennedy, Congressman Rangel, Congresswoman Lowey -- (applause) -- thank you all very much. Congressman Payne, thank you. God bless you. Thank you. (Applause.)
