From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

President Baltar, I offer my sincere congratulations... I say that knowing we've had our differences and that you take office despite my many reservations. You may be the most brilliant person I've ever met, but your intelligence is unleavened by compassion. You must be reminded of your ethical responsibilities and challenged to rise above your own selfish needs. I don't write this to hurt you, but to beg you to open your heart. Understand that the people in the fleet look to you not just for leadership, but for solace... justice. Find a way to give them that, and you will be a great leader.
--Letter to Vice President Gaius Baltar from President Laura Roslin, to be opened upon her expected death (Epiphanies)
