From The Hill’s interview with XM’s Rebecca Roberts (daughter of Cokie):<UL.
What were discussions around the dinner table like?
Discussions really were about what bill was in Senate markup. I now think that borders on child abuse [laughs]. It was the time of day when my parents were catching up with each other. We were expected to contribute, if not listen. As we got older we were expected to contribute.
Did you find it boring at the time?
No. Does that make me a giant geek? I suppose there were times when you’d long for them to talk about something else. But it’s not as though we didn’t have the usual “What’s going on in school?” …
Did you have any rebellious phases?
One of these days I’m going to snap. I’ve still never had a rebellious phase. I’ve always done what I’m supposed to do.
