“Whenever a politician means to give you the knife at a convention, the last thing he’ll say to you, as he leaves the room, is: ‘Now look, Jack, if there’s anything I can do for you, you just let me knw!’ That’s the euphemism for ‘You’re dead.'”

–John F. Kennedy, quoted in “The Politics of John F. Kennedy.”
