In a time when millions of Americans are pounding the pavement looking for their next opportunity, at least one American tells Katie Couric he doesn’t enjoy his job.
But can you blame him?
On “60 Minutes” tomorrow night, defense secretary Robert Gates opens up to Couric about his job.
“I don’t enjoy my job,” he says. “Being the secretary of war in a time of war is a very painful thing.”
Couric spoke numerous times to Gates when she accompanied him on a trip to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan the week of May 4. CBS says it represents “the most access that Gates has given to a television reporter.” The segment, videotaped mostly in Afghanistan, airs tomorrow night on “60 Minutes.”
