Personal Quote:

[on appearing on Bill Maher's current events program] That's a tricky show to do. If you go there and just try to be funny, then you're not doing the show correctly. But you're also competing with a former congressman, a financial specialist from CNBC. You've got to figure out what your turf is and you have to have a little bit of passion about politics and what's in the news. See more »
