The linked article had the following comment.......
Though "Celebrity Jeopardy!" has become a tradition, this is only the third Power Players week in the show's 28 years. In past years, Sen. Al Franken, Bob Woodard and White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer have participated. And one can presume that the questions will be a couple of degrees more difficult than the kind tossed at such "Celebrity Jeopardy" participants as Andy Richter and "Desperate Housewives'" Dana Delany.
Obviously the writer has never watched the show if he thinks the clues will be tougher than normal celebrity shows. Cooper, Abdul-Jabbar and Matthews all played in the tournament with Richter and none got out of the first round.
