In the latest Katie Couric “sound bite and a half” dueling interviews (both candidate gets the same question and can actually use more than 25 words to answer it), she asked “Which three people, currently alive – other than myself – would you like to have dinner with?”
- Nelson Mandela
- Warren Buffett (“he’s like your favorite uncle, only worth 40 million and really smart”)
- His grandmother, who he’s only seen once in the last 19 months (too fragile to travel)
- David Petreus
- Meg Whitman of eBay
- An athlete. Any athlete. Maybe Michael Phelps. Or that gold-medal wrestler, whose name he’s not entirely sure of – Henry Suhado? Or the 400-meter relay team, to tell them we still love them.
Who are your three?
My list starts with Jon Stewart – I’m really not sure who my other two are. Gimme some ideas.
