Because it involves everybody.
Yes. You see, if Teddy Kennedy had been the President of the
United States, it would have been a whole different -- or the candidate.
It would have been entirely different, because Teddy has it at heart.
Are you establishing a good relationship with the Administration?
Well, I'm trying to. I was the co-chairman of the dinner
in honor of Carter. I gave a party for Califano and we raised some
money there. But the dinner as a whole raised a million dollars,
largely due to the efforts of Mr. Krim, Arthur Krim, and Mr. Steven
Ross. But my party did raise some money.
Where did you have your party?
It was on the 2nd of June.
No, where did you have it?
Oh, in my apartment. And the dinner at the Waldorf really
went very well, but I was supposed to sit next to Carter, which was
the time I'd hoped to have at least a few minutes to talk to him.
Instead of that, he came in, shook hands with everybody in the room,
including me, and was out in an hour and forty minutes.
And she did not come with him?
She didn't come. So I had no chance to talk to him at all.
I received a note of thanks, handwritten, from him, and that was it.
