Who said this?

"Don't buy a single vote more than necessary. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for a landslide.”"

(Clue; It wasn't Helen Clark to Michael Cullen. Her instruction was, buy every vote you can. We're going to need every last one.)

OK, who was it who (allegedly) told Richard Nixon: "Give it up, Dick. Kennedy stole the election fair and square"?

Now, Craig, that's the kind of election quote somebody could have used with Don Brash.

"Give it up Don, Helen stole the election fair and square!"
