Ann Richards and Mario Cuomo

I did a Doritos commercial with Ann Richards and Mario Cuomo, who had both recently lost elections in a Republican landslide (that eventually led us into the Middle Eastern quagmire). Ann Richards approached me.

‘I hear you’re good.’

‘I am, are you?’

They were both articulate, bright, and forthcoming and I can’t say that for those they lost to.  Cuomo and I had a great conversation about politics and they had to drag me away to film. Both were political victims of their honesty and we’ve suffered from that as well.
