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.”

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.
