“The question I’m most frequently asked these days (besides “Is your wife pregnant?”) is “What are you going to do in the magazine now that the elections are over?” The answer is, thankfully, a lot more. Frankly, we’ve all breathed a great sigh of relief: We’re no longer compelled to cover a presidential race that offered few surprises and was clogged with clunky metaphors. Now, we’re free to pursue more vital crosscurrents of culture and politics.”-John Kennedy🇺🇸 ~
“I met him once- he was interviewing me for George magazine. It was just him, me and a tape recorder. And he was thoughtful. I expected a pretty face and a dim brain, and I got a pretty face and a bright brain. “He was most interested in the fact that both our fathers had been in Congress, and did I think they would go into politics again given media today. It was something he clearly had spent a great deal of time thinking about. I do think our fathers would go into politics, but for reasons that have much more to do with them than the times. But it was clearly something he had been puzzling, meditating over. “The second thing he told me - he was newly married at the time - was that he was surprised by the media attention his wife was getting, that he was seeing the world through the eyes of a normal person for the first time and seeing how odd his life had been. It was normal to him, but he was surprised by how undone she was by it all. ‘She didn’t ask for it. All she did was marry me,’ he said” -Cokie Roberts, ABC broadcaster and daughter of Rep. Hale Boggs, D-La.
