FOX News Sunday celebrates its 11th anniversary next week and Steve Battaglio’s “The Biz” column in TV Guide sits down with host Chris Wallace.

    This race is beyond my wildest dreams. A year ago we didn’t think of Barack Obama, but we were thinking, “What if Hillary Clinton had a real opponent?” We knew John McCain was going to run, but what if Rudolph Giuliani got in?
