  2. Paula Broadwell:

    I think a lot of women were watching and wanted to see what his response and what the tone of it was and he's clearly wrestling with how to combat this issue, but I still feel like he wasn't strong enough.

  4. President Barack Obama:

    I don't think there's any politician at a national level -- that has not thought about being the president, and if you're sitting right next to the president in every meeting and, you know -- wrestling with these issues, I'm sure that for him he's saying to himself, 'I could do a really good job.'.

  5. Rob Koehler:

    Both of these organizations failed to intervene to save Navids life, now they must step up to save Mehdis life and protect all Iranian athletes. The fact that Wrestling Federation continues to neglect Wrestling Federation duty of care for athletes by failing to take action against Iran is a gross abdication of duty. Their willingness to stand by while athletes are jailed, tortured and executed can no longer be tolerated. The Wrestling Federation and UWW must act now.
