Stern told Stephanopoulous, a guest on his SiriusXM show:

The first thing I said was 'George Stephanopoulos' and everyone went, 'That ain't crazy.'' You've got the intellectual capacity.

The former Clinton staffer diplomatically refused to say if he'd say "yes" if offered the gig, but admitted he and his family love the show. He said:

I think it would be a lot of fun, but I like what I'm doing too. I am not going to be Shermanesque about it. It's a great show. It's very flattering. Big shoes to fill.
