Just returned from family vacation in Greece to the news that Robert Novak has died.
I had more than my share of clashes with Bob over the years, going all the way back to my first job on Capitol Hill in the early ‘80s. His columns could be harshly partisan, cuttingly personal. But I also couldn’t help but admire his tenacity, his capacity for crushing loads of work, and the passion that often exploded into outrage on tv.
I hope he found the peace he was searching for in his final years.
