I attended the Family First Forum as a speaker yesterday.
Bob McCoskrie conducted a sit down interview with John Key for an hour, and later in the morning repeated the exercise with Phil Goff.
The contrasting answers to a common question stuck in my memory are:
Who are the wisest, most influential people in your political lives?
Goff answered Mandela (and explained why), Ghandi (ditto) and Michael Joseph Savage.
Earlier John Key, with little hesitation answered his mother (and elaborated). And Wayne Eagleson, his chief-of-staff and a "clever" lawyer.
Make of it what you will.
