Robert Novak stirred the pot for me
Robert Novak passed away Tuesday morning. He suffered from brain cancer. Novak was a prominent journalist and Washington pundit for more than 40 years. I first saw Robert Novak on a show on CNN called Crossfire in 1988. I remember despising his conservatively slanted politics, but admiring his intellect and passion. He made me want to watch the show, just so I could hear what outlandish thing he would say next. Mr. Novak played a huge part in my political awakening. I am eternally grateful.
