What do you do?
Question: Beyond a simple title, how would you describe what you do for a living?
Robert Menendez: I change the world every day. I am an agent of change, and hopefully positive change. And that’s the way I view my work. And when I say “change the world every day,” well, how do we try to ensure that no child in America goes to sleep at night worried that they don’t have healthcare coverage and cannot get ill? How do we ensure that every kid’s God-given potential is fulfilled? How do we use the power of our collective intellect as a more powerful tool than the power of our bombs? And how do we do it in a way that promotes democracy and human rights across the world? And how do we take American ingenuity and turn it for good in other parts of the world? So what I get to do is work every day at changing the world.
