Blue America Update: John Hall Profile
There is a fun profile of Blue America winner John Hall (D-NY-19) that I thought folks might like to read. My favorite bit:
In a way, Hall's new job has simply broadened the audience for his lectures, from the Orleans crowd to the C-SPAN crowd. Not that this will change his message. Asked if he will keep sticking it to the Man now that he is the Man, Hall responds with a quick story.
"I already met a couple lobbyists from Raytheon during orientation in Washington, and I just told them what I think is wrong with their missile system. Maybe they'll write checks to my next opponent. I don't care. I got into this race because my wife told me to stop yelling at the TV."
Love it. Crooks and Liars has video of Hall on The Colbert Report, singing the National Anthem with Stephen Colbert. It is not to be missed.
For some history on Rep. Hall, take a peek at the Blue America profile that Howie did. This is one of those pat on the back moments for you guys — thanks so much for all of your hard work during the last election cycle. Well done, indeed.
