PBS: Video: Firing Line: William F. Buckley Interviewing George C. Wallace: The Wallace Crusade From 1968

The only thing about this video is that I just wish it was longer and we got to see a whole interview between Bill Buckley and George Wallace. Because Buckley was a true Conservative and he would've taken the more progressive or liberal stance against Wallace when it came to civil rights and segregation. Or least that it how it would seem. I even as a Liberal believe you can be a Conservative and still believe in commonsense American values like liberty, equality, equal rights and civil liberties. But that is me.
