I was going to get a degree in economics and be a teacher. But I couldn't afford to pay for the education. So I just got the MBA and not the doctorate. I loved it at Bain, and I've been there ever since.
I gave Mitt Romney some donations for his campaign because he was a friend, and friendship came first. I've always been a Democrat, and I've had different views than Mitt Romney. I'm not Mitt Romney, and I think people will realize that when they meet me out there.
As a father of four, I want our children to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that are the fruit of progressive values.
My father was a veteran and my mother a schoolteacher. They taught me the value of a good job and an honest day's work.
My favorite foods are things that aren't great to eat, like pizza.
I've probably done more venture capital deals and expansion financings than I have done private equity deals. But both are the same. Private equity companies have also built jobs.
What I like about Bain Capital is that we have Republicans, we have Democrats, we have independents; we are a diverse firm in terms of political views. But what we do is we sit down and we try to solve the problems.
A lot of NBA owners sit at the midcourt. But we love being under the basket and seeing the players.
Boston and America is really resilient.
Boston is really a small town, and the pro sports here are almost like a college sport.
I love Indian food. London also has great Indian food.
I think we have to look at the whole way campaigns are financed. The No. 1 problem is PAC and special-interest money.
I was an international tax specialist. Yeah, I was an international man of mystery and tax specialist.
I'm a Democrat, and I think people who meet me will realize I'm a Democrat. I have progressive Democratic values.
Instead of being a teacher, I got a job with a company called Bain & Co., consulting firm, and they taught me how to build businesses.
