Vox Populi: The O'Shaughnessy Files

By William O’Shaughnessy | Go to book overview

MEETING STEVE FORBES AND
GOVERNOR MARIO M. CUOMO
FOR “BREAKFAST AT ‘21’ ”

To get two different views on the economic situation of the
time and the state of the presidency, we interviewed Steve
Forbes, one-time presidential candidate, and Governor
Mario Cuomo, who we continue to hope will run for the
highest office in the land. These interviews were broadcast
from the “21” Club in New York on February 11, 2004.

WILLIAM O’SHAUGHNESSY (W.O.): Steve Forbes, as we listen to you at “21” this morning, we have to say that “President Forbes” has a nice ring to it. Have you gotten that out of your system yet?

STEVE FORBES (S.F.): The voters got it out of my system! And I’m not going to run for president again, but I am in a happy position now of being an “outside agitator,” pushing things like tax reform and the like.

W.O.: But you were almost president, Steve Forbes. You took a good run at it four years ago. Are you sorry you didn’t make it to the Oval Office?

S.F.: Well, it’s much more fun, Bill, to win elections than to lose them. But the one thing I’ve learned and my siblings have learned from my father is that you always put the past behind you and look to the future. Life is a short trip. Don’t get caught up in regrets, and always look toward tomorrow.

W.O.: Steve Forbes, I saw you talking to Mario Cuomo before your speech at “21” this morning. What the hell were you two talking about?

S.F.: We were plotting a takeover of the government! only kidding!

But seriously, we were exchanging notes on the political scene. He obviously has been a major player in politics. I was very interested in what he had to say about the Democratic race.

W.O.: Mr. Forbes, does Forbes magazine endorse candidates for president?
