That first DQ still puzzles me. Not sure what to make of it, especially for a person born relatively recently, historically speaking.

Previous IQs:

Did you once tell your supporters to "ride towards the sound of the guns"? - Pat Buchanan, after winning the 1992 New Hampshire GOP primary
Were you that person's sister, who served as Treasurer of the United States? - Bay Buchanan
Did you command the ironclad CSS Virginia? - Franklin Buchanan (no relation, as far as I know)

Buchanan x3!

DQs:

Associated with NYC?
Best known for a single incident?
Had a famous spouse?

IQs:

Did you hang out with Babe the Blue Ox?
Did you use a rattlesnake as a lariat?
Were you a bad guy always accompanied by your nasty dog?
