Robert Novak in an interview with Kansan.com:
Do you have a favorite candidate for the Republicans?
A: Not really, I think I'm fondest of Ron Paul. He's not going to be president, he's not going to be nominated, but I enjoy him and I guess he's the only person I agree with on foreign policy. All the candidates have defects, major defects, but we've elected a lot of presidents with major defects over the years.
Novak added that while in his twenties, he had a dim view of the future of the country and Western civilization. Asked if he still holds that view, Novak said, "I'm 76, so I don't have much future. I don't worry much about it."
