Dan Quayle '69 Among Celebrities Who Offer 'To-Do' Lists to Newsweek

January 16, 2007

Dan Quayle 2006.jpgJanuary 16, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - "I was young enough to have a second career," Dan Quayle, former U.S. Vice President and 1969 graduate of DePauw University, tells Newsweek. Quayle is among several baby boomer celebrities -- including Stephen King, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Bill Cowher, Bill O'Reilly and Cal Ripken Jr. -- who are asked to list three things they'd still like to accomplish. The feature is inspired by Sara Davidson's book, LEAP! What Will We Do With the Rest of Our Lives?.

"The 44th veep had a meteoric political career, entering Congress at the age of 29 and becoming vice president 12 years later," write the magazine's editors. "Quayle has spent the last seven years as the global chairman of the hedge fund Cerberus Capital Management."

Quayle's "to-do list" is:

  • I have a goal of never going sky diving, unlike Bush 41.
  • To go on a horseback safari in Botswana.
  • To take my family to Greece this summer.
