Family (continued)


If it showed, if it was big and brassy, that was okay. It was my father appreciated brains, someone to talk to you know, and, and uh, go somewheres and do things and uh, education. I think I owe him, owe him more for my--for my personality, for my behavior, for my--or whatever it is, to him more than my mother. I thought everybody considers their mother the person to love. I don't feel that way. I appreciate what she did, I'm grateful what she did. She was a very--a good politician, let's put it that way. I wouldn't say shrewd, because she was not a diplomat where my father was a diplomat. Same--the way--the same way my son Miles is. He can tell you off, you don't even know what hit you. Okay?
