Thank you for the invitation to speak here.

I am truly impressed with the list of those who have preceded me in this lecture series, which include Presidents Carter and Reagan, both Presidents Bush, Vice President Mondale, Tom Donilon, Nelson Rockefeller, my former boss Secretary of Defense Bob Gates, Colin Powell, Leslie Stahl, Bob Dole, Robert and Ted Kennedy, Pat Moynihan, Barry Goldwater, Shirley Temple and Alf Landon himself. It is an honor to join this list. I believe I am the first Secretary of Homeland Security to do so.
