    meaning of "through it all"

    Quote from Bill Clinton 's speech "I am profoundly grateful for the support of so many Americans who somehow through it all seem to still know that I care about them a great deal, that I care about their problems and their dreams." what does " through it all" mean here?
    thanks.

    'Throughout all the difficulties'. I haven't checked, but I'm pretty sure Paul Anka used this phrase in the words to My Way.

    I agree with Bob.

    I could also mean "through all the circumstances", "through good or bad".

    In other words it's a tacky American sentimentalism which doesn't have any meaning at all.
