Ted always knew he could win. Not only could win, but would win. He told me so. I had some skeptical moments, I must admit. This was particularly true when Dewhurst entered the race, with all those millions to spend. I thought maybe we had bitten off more than we could chew. Not Ted — he was confident he would win.
He said, “I will win,” as though he were stating a matter of fact — like I say, “I’m going to have a big bowl of ice cream after I get home from the concert.” (I work as a music critic at night.) I mean, I know I’m going to have a big bowl of ice cream after I get home from the concert. In the same way, Ted knew he was going to win.
I hoped he'd win. I had my doubts. Honestly, Dewhurst's showing in the original primary was intimidating. Glad things worked out.
Now I need to go see if there's any ice cream left.
