We can’t use a double standard — there’s no room for double standards in American politics — for measuring our own and other people’s policies. Our demands for democratic practices in other lands will be no more effective than the guarantee of those practices in our own country.

Hubert Horatio Humphrey (1911-1978) American politician
Democratic National Convention, Philadelphia (14 Jul 1948)
