It’s a difficult question to answer for anybody: What is your biggest failure? But for most people, it isn’t difficult to be consistent in answering the question.

Haven’t even come close in some cases. And– you know, if you ask me—what’s my biggest disappointment is that we haven’t changed the tone in Washington as much as I would have liked.
