Bill Gates doesn't really want to be on the top of one particular list.
When Donny Deutsch asked him about his financial status, Gates said he wished he wasn't the world's richest man.
"There's nothing good that comes out of that," he said.
When Deutsch suggested, however, that Gates wouldn't want to be No. 2 on the list, Gates disagreed.
"No," he said. "You get more visibility as a result of that."
At the end of the interview, Deutsch asked why Gates wouldn't consider running for president.
"For every reason," he said. "I wouldn't like it, I wouldn't be elected, I'm better at what i'm doing. That's a very unusual job, and the work I can do, whether it's time spent on Microsoft or the [Bill and Melinda Gates] Foundation, all my learnings have built up to be able to operate in that way and so I'm going to stick to what I know."
Gates also said that he doesn't have an iPod and that he doesn't carry a wallet around that often. I suppose that's how someone stays on top of the richest man list.
