Cartwright said on MSNBC, “I can tell you, I don’t have an enemies list. First time I heard that term was I think, Richard Nixon, and they gave him a bad time over that, as I recall.”

The freshman member noted he’s only been in politics for one year. So we’ll check back with Cartwright in about a decade, because it takes time to attract enemies.

He said in an earlier interview on MSNBC that “it’s an unsolved mystery, and maybe someone will pick up the phone and tell me.”

Van Hollen added that he would be a supporter of Hillary Clinton, if she runs. Uh oh. That could get Van Hollen on Vice President Biden’s list — if he has one, of course.
