This Week: Pat Buchanan
Ultra-conservative, former GOP presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan is famous for his forays in journalism and politics. Twice he left CNN’s “Crossfire” to launch presidential bids for the 1992 and 1996 races, only to quickly rejoin the show after failing to receive the Republican nomination both times. As “Crossfire” celebrates its 15th anniversary, Buchanan continues to offer the public a mouthful of controversial political debate with rotating co-hosts Geraldine Ferraro and Bill Press.
Will the political pundit finally stay in place or is he planning another leave of absence for the presidential race in 2000? Test your knowledge of his wordsmithing talents below.
