Investigating Power: Video: Mike Wallace: A Friendship With Richard Nixon

This post was originally posted at The New Democrat on Blogger

What I get from this interview of Mike Wallace is that he liked Richard Nixon because he was impressed by the man's intelligence and knowledge. That they could talk about a wide range of issues and that he would learn things from Nixon that he didn't know before. That Nixon was intelligently interesting and was someone you want to talk to and to get to know. This is not even a five minute video, but if that is what Mike Wallace likes about you, you should take that and be happy. Because Wallace I believe is the best news interviewer of all-time because of his own intelligence about a wide range of issues and his preparation and ability to interview anybody about anything.
