response to them was that I wasn't a politician.
Did you by any chance those earlier years ever discuss with
Jim Buckley family planning issues, birth control, even
Not directly. I mean, we agreed that there were some
issues that we disagreed on, and that certainly was one of them.
You know, the interesting thing is I had respect for him as a
gentleman, and I guess that was largely the reason I felt that I
could without embarrassment back him. I have respect for the
intellect of his brother.

Yes. I really-- I find people with whom I communicate
even with disagreements-- and that's the only way I can
communicate with people, when I have respect for them. As I told

What about the executive director of that commission? What
was her name? Linda Chavez?
