I went to South Africa - I’ve spent a lot of time there in my life - and I went back there. There’s a whole thing going on there that’s not forced. Kinda sometimes seems a little forced in different parts of the world, but everybody’s working hard for the future and everybody’s doing their best to make that…and there’s posters of Nelson Mandela everywhere and everybody loves Nelson and everybody…there’s a lot of poverty, there’s a lot of unemployment. But I think that the whole world of politicians should have to go to a conference with Nelson Mandela ‘cause that man has got to be the coolest president in the world.
