Personal Quote:

[in response to Harry Belafonte's "house slave" remark about him] If Harry had wanted to attack my politics, that was fine. If he wanted to attack a particular position I hold, that was fine. But to use a slave reference, I think, is unfortunate and is a throwback to another time and another place that I wish Harry had thought twice about using. See more »

Trivia:

In his autobiography, he claims that his mother is descended from Gen. Sir Eyre Coote (b. 1760, d. 1823), Governor of Jamaica (1806-1808) though he does not provide details of the descent. See more »
