Quoted: Chris Wallace on his dad’s changed priorities

“There’s a lesson there. This is a man. . . for whom work always came first. Now he can’t even remember it.”

— Chris Wallace on the poignant lesson of his father, Mike Wallace, now 93, who in the fog of age never talks about his legendary “60 Minutes” career, but only about his family. In an interview with Playboy, the Fox News host also holds forth on Sarah Palin (“Do I think she would have made a good president? Not really”), Anderson Cooper (“don't get what all the hype’s about”), Rachel Maddow (“smart-alecky”), Chuck Schumer (“won’t budge beyond his notes”), and President Obama (“tremendous disappointment”).
