CK: Have you guys ever thought about writing for, like, a woman's magazine or something? (Laughter)
DH: What do you have against women's magazines?
CK: Nothing at all, but I thought you were the crack political team here. As I said, it was kind of over a period of time, you know, obviously we talked about politics, we talked about what's going on, we've been watching the team that the president-elect is putting together -- Hillary Clinton is going to be a spectacular part of that team, you know, then there was a vacancy here, you know, just like everybody else, you know: who's going to fill it, isn't that interesting, there's a lot of great candidates, you know, obviously I have become much more politically involved than I have in the past, so you know, I figure, why not try, I really think I have something to offer.
and now we discover that her net worth is over 100 million dollars- whom does this bastion of all things democrat and daughter of JFK contribute to in last 10 years in new york politics? we know not her vote, BUT
Just one NY councilman for $1000.00 in last 10 years. Les hope you know , maybe , you know , she voted for him ?
More transcripts from you know- her interview.
DH: Why is it that you apparently did not give Senator Clinton any kind of advance warning that you'd be coming out for Senator Obama?
CK: Um, I'm not going to talk about that particular process, but --
DH: Why's that?
CK: Because those conversations that I have had and had during that time are not something that I think is relevant right now.
NC: How come it isn't relevant? It kind of goes to your relationship with the person that you're trying to succeed in the Senate.
CK: I think this is about the future, and, um, you know, that's what I want to talk about, which is, what's going on in our state, you know, why I would be the best person to help deliver for New York. We're facing, you know, an economic crisis, the paper this morning said there's, you know, five billion dollars of construction projects which just stopped, you know, that's, you know -- conversations a year ago, that's -- beside that, I don't, as I said, I have conversations with a lot of people, and those are confidential.
NC: You said that you would run -- and this earned you, I think, some applause from Democrats who were skeptical before, but you said you would support in 2010, whoever the governor appoints, but it occurred to me to wonder why: Why not run if you want this job? If you were sincere about this job, why not run in 2010 regardless of what happens in the next two months?
CK: Well, you know, I'm a Democrat, a loyal Democrat, I would support whoever the governor appoints, and as I said, I think there are many ways to serve and advance the issues that I care about, and I have a long time to do that, so I plan, in 2010, to support the Democrat.
NC: It just seems like the only -- your interest in this seat coincided with the chance to become appointed to it, which is the easy way into the seat, and so it raises questions. If you really want it --
