"I voted for Obama. In fact, I helped write one of his speeches," Zuckerman said in 2015. In a note to elaborate this statement, he wrote "Over the years I have been asked by various public officials, including those in Washington, for my perspectives and views on numerous issues. These conversations have always been considered confidential"..."My point in noting during a recent television interview that I had once 'helped' contribute to one of Barack Obama's campaign speeches was to reflect the fact that my recent criticisms of the president came from someone who had been supportive of him, who had voted for him and whose newspaper endorsed him. I continue to hope for his and the country's success."
