(CNN) - In preparing for the re-launch of Crossfire, we discovered this interview in the CNN archives. In November of 1982, Crossfire host Pat Buchanan sat down with his former boss, ex-President Richard Nixon. Their conversation touched on many of the famous people Nixon had known, including Dwight Eisenhower, the Kennedy brothers and Lyndon Johnson. Nixon also reminisced about being Vice President and disclosed what he looks for in any president.
His picks for the three best politicians of the 20th century probably will surprise you.
