Just watched the 60 Minutes segment on Fast Car and Rocket. Elon was very emotional about the dark days in 2008 with impending SpaceX and his personal bankruptcy, Roadster losing million$ every month along with his divorce.
Christmas week 2008 saved both companies with $1.5 Billion NASA contract and new investors in Tesla. 60 Minutes did a very balanced report with both companies. Of course any fair reporting means extremely positive view on both companies.
Elon's got my vote into any offices he pursues whenever he's bored with all his technological endeavors.
