Before Toronto Mayor Rob Ford confessed about his alleged crack cocaine use and a string of other "drunken stupor" controversies, he had dreams of being prime minister.

In a teaser clip for a 2006 Rogers TV interview, a fresh-faced Rob Ford outlined his political aspirations.

"I want to be mayor, I want to be premier and I want to be prime minister," the then-Toronto city councillor said.

Ford was able to achieve his first goal, but in light of his "I have smoked crack cocaine" admission Tuesday, he may be eating his own words.

"All I can say is, actions speak louder than words."
