Last night was night two of the “Jeopardy!” “Power Players” week, featuring TV news personalities and other prominent Washington DC types. The players were NBA legend and U.S. State Department cultural ambassador Kareem Abdul Jabar, former White House Press Secretary and current Fox News “The Five” co-host Dana Perino and CNBC anchor David Faber.
