Tucker Carlson  Paul Begala1.jpgDemocratic Strategist and Pundit Paul Begala reminisces about his old friend Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson in an opinion piece Tuesday on the Daily Caller Web site.

In it, he takes a look back at their days opposite each other on CNN’s “Crossfire” in which arguments between them sparked daily. But for today, he says, Tucker got something right.

An excerpt:
“We are as different as we can be, Tucker Carlson and I. He is a Protestant, libertarian, elitist conservative. I am a Catholic, communitarian, populist Democrat. And yet I have to tip my hat to him. Tucker predicted the winter of our discontent more accurately than all the president’s pollsters and all the presidentÂ’s men.”
