Personal Quote:

[If Barack Obama is elected, the rest of the world may have a shock.] I don't know what they expect from him, but the notion that then there'll be Nelson Mandela or something will not happen. They have to understand that he's an intense American patriot. [In Afghanistan] he will run that war very, very hard; harder than George W. Bush - and the world may not like that. See more »

Trivia:

He is a professor of Art History and history at Columbia University in New York City. His wife is also a professor of genetics and development at Columbia University. See more »
