Lawrence Eagleburger on Richard Nixon

From what I hope was the very last "Crossfire":

CNN.com - Transcripts: And joining us from Charlottesville, Virginia, the distinguished, superb former secretary of state, former Nixon administration official, Lawrence Eagleburger.

LAWRENCE EAGLEBURGER, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: You had to say that, didn't you?

CARVILLE: It was on the prompter, Mr. Secretary. And I might add Reagan administration and Bush administration and every other administration, too.

WATKINS: OK. Secretary Eagleburger, this is the million dollar question. I mean, folks have been waiting for three decades to know who Deep Throat was or is. Is Mark Felt, in your opinion, Deep Throat?

EAGLEBURGER: Probably.

WATKINS: Do you think he's Deep Throat?

EAGLEBURGER: Probably. You know, President Nixon once suspected him. I'm surprised he didn't end up dead somewhere because of that...
