…waiting to do a live interview with Dick Blumenthal, who was at the other end of the new World Headquarters. And the producer said to me…
“Toss to a break, and then we’ll do Blumenthal.”
“He’s on the phone.”
“On the phone?”
“With the President. THE President.”
“Well, after the break it is then.”
I turned around, looked across the room, and there was Dick Blumenthal, phone pressed to ear, beaming. And all I could think was, “Wow, the guy at the other end of the room is talking to the President of the United States. How cool is that?”
I like moments like that. I like it that after all these years I may be jaded, but not beyond recognition.
