MITCHELL:

(strangled whisper)

... Because it's got homeless

shelters... and Head Start centers ...

and... and...

BOB:

(whispering)

Hot lunches.

The President looks back at him for an instant then turns

back toward the table.

MITCHELL:

(building)

... And hot lunches for little

(thundering suddenly)

And if I kill it... I'll look like a

prick.

They all flinch slightly.

MITCHELL:

And I don't want to look like a prick!

(beat)

I want YOU to look like pricks!!!

DIFFERENT ANGLE:

SPEAKER:

Sir, we tried to kill it twice...

MITCHELL:

(whisper again)

I don't think so, Howard. If you had

killed it -- it would be dead.

(looking him in the eye)

When I kill something - - it always

dies. Doesn't it, flob?

BOB:

(steely)

Always dead.

MAJ. LEADER

Mr. President, with all the work your

wife has done with the homeless...

The President turns and stares daggers at him. The man starts

to flumph as Mitchell cuts him off.

MITCHELL:

Norman, I don't want you to do this

cause you're forced to...

(beat)

I want you to do this because you want

to. I want you to do it because you

think it's the right thing to do. I

want you to do it because you're acting

in the best interests of our country...
