It seems that this has been the year of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump being in second place in several venues. He is the Avis of political candidates. And Trump certainly tries harder. In fact, I find him to be one of the most trying people on the planet.
Every year as the year comes to a close, Barbara Walters presents her "10 Most Fascinating People" special, and as usual there are easy choices and some more shocking picks. You can tune into tonight's special on ABC to see if you chose right.
