For some people the ultimate goal in life has been becoming the President of the United States, would you like to be the President of the United States?
I really don’t believe I would, Rona. But I would like to see somebody as the President who could do the job, and there are very capable people in this country.
Most people who are capable and not running for office. Most men are frightened of politics today.
It is a shame, isn’t it?
It is a shame. The most capable people are not necessarily running for political office, and that is a very sad commentary on the country. They head major corporations, and they had this and that, but they are not running for political office.
Why wouldn’t someone like yourself run for political office? You have all the money that you possibly need. You’ve accomplished a great deal even though you are only 34. I know there’s a lot of things that you possibly can do in the years ahead. Why wouldn’t you dedicate yourself to public service?
Because I think it’s a very mean life. I would love, and I would – I would dedicate my life to this country but I see it as being a mean life, and I also see it in somebody with strong views, and somebody with the kind of views that are maybe a little bit unpopular, which may be right, but may be unpopular, wouldn’t necessarily have a chance of getting elected against somebody with no great brain but a big smile. That’s a sad commentary for the political process.
Television in a strange way has ruined that process, hasn’t it?
It’s hurt the process very much. I mean the Abraham Lincoln’s of the world. Abraham Lincoln would probably not be electable today because of television. He was not a handsome man, and he did not smile at all. He would not be considered to be a prime candidate for the presidency, and that’s a shame, isn’t it?
But if all the men are like you, then when are we going to get somebody who might be good?
I don’t know. I hope it’s around the corner, but I don’t know. I really don’t know. What I would like to be involved in is trying to help choose somebody, or working with a group of people whereby they put up a candidate who would be acceptable to be a presidential, you know, to be the president. The country if we have the one man, and it’s really not that big a situation. You know people say, “Well, what could anybody do as president?” One man could turn this country around. The one proper president could turn this country around. I firmly believe that.
You think there is one man?

There is one man that can turn this country around. I could tell you, I know a number of people that would be excellent presidents. I will not tell you who they are, but
39 I know a number of people that could be excellent presidents of this country. But they are not running for political office. They are not in political office. They are extraordinarily brilliant. They are very, very confident. They are leaders. They have the respect of everybody, and they would be fabulous presidents. But they’re not running for political office, and I think that’s very sad, and I think you said it. Maybe television is a thing that most hurt the political process in this country.
