I remember getting the go-ahead from my American History teacher in high school to get up in front of the class and read a lengthy article which basically protrayed that man as the embodiment of what's wrong with American politics. Most people hadn't even heard of the guy. I think he was the minority whip at the time; he had the connections to be Speaker, but preferred to stay in the shadows with the lobbyists, corporate interests, 'dispellers' of global warming (hahaha!), and other such characters. People who didn't go his way got the short end of the stick and were buried in appropriations bills. He doesn't seem to opposed to gerrymandering to maintain a constituency comfortaby in his favor. I believe the Democrats, in their eternal naivety, tried to get this guy indicted under RICO charges.
