Kenneth

Chuck-

My daughter was working for a US Senator during the first efforts to get The Bankruptcy Reform Act passed. I did consumer Bankruptcy cases at the time. When I asked her what she thought the odds of eventual passage were, she said it was an absolute certainty because Senator Biden (who she said was the real force behind the bill and a fervent opponent of even the slightest efforts to mitigate it's harshness through amendments ) wouldn't have it any other way. That may be when he first got the nickname "The Senator from MBNA".

She had been a political junkie her entire life but eventually became disenchanted by the fact that many of the people she looked up to politically (such as Biden and Leiberman) were so clearly and utterly controlled by the dominant industry in their states. It's true of both parties but I mention two Democrats (at the time)since she was and is a lifelong Democrat and discovered that few people on either side of the aisle are truly motivated by principal or the best interests of the public, especially when facing issues of great import to their monied constituents.
