When you were ten years old, eleven maybe. I don’t know if you’ll even remember this, President Taft came to town, some campaign speech. You were in the crowd. I suppose you were with your dad. But you turned to me and said, “Nuck, what’s a fella gotta do to become president?” I said, “Well, you gotta study, learn everything you can about the world and do a lot of hard work.” And you looked up at me in disbelief and said, “Gee, is that all?” I used to think you’d own the world one day.[to Jimmy]
