Recently, on Tuesday February 20th, I had the honor of interviewing Bill Daley and on a later date (Thursday, March 1) Patrick Kennedy  Below I have taken the time to list all of the questions in the show notes below, enjoy!

Bill Daley Questions

  1. Currently, you are devoting much of your time to the Kennedy for Illinois Governor campaign. In a way, history is repeating itself with a Daley backing a Kennedy. What do you think your Father would say about your role in the campaign?

  3. How do you think campaigns have changed since your father’s time in public office?
  4. Chris Kennedy’s uncle Sargent Shriver served as president of Chicago Board of Education while your father was Mayor.  And, Chris’  aunt — Eunice Kennedy Shriver — held the first Special Olympics at Soldier Field 50 years ago. Chris Kennedy’s campaign has had a focus on Education and People With Disabilities. Has this message had traction with the voting public?
  5. You had a very solid friendship with Senator Ted Kennedy.  I know that Senator Ted Kennedy loved the fact that you “love the game of politics and government”.  Is there anything about Senator Ted Kennedy which you remember most?
  6. Chris Kennedy is running a campaign against The Political  Establishment.  He has been characterized as “unbossed and unbought”. What does that mean to the voters in Illinois?

  7. I have been told that 1 in 4 families are affected by some form of mental illness. In fact, my sister Rosalie, has Down Syndrome which is also an intellectual disability.
