Clinton: We Americans are always at our best when we hear — and heed — the cries of others.

Bush: When confronted with massive human suffering, Americans have always stepped up and answered the call to help.

Clinton: But there’s never been anything on the scale of human tragedy in our own hemisphere like what we’re now witnessing in Haiti.

Bush: Today President Clinton and I are joining together to appeal to you with real urgency.

Clinton: Give now and lives will be saved. Thank you.

Bush: Thank you.
