Who is your political icon?

I know its hard to say that you respect a politician when much of what they do is obscured by their own spin team, but who is the politician you most felt a connection to, someone trying to help amongs the wolves?

For me the answer is William Proxmire, of Golden Fleece award fame. I don't agree with everything he did, for example attitude towards NASA, but overall I like what he stood for. He holds the record for most consecutive roll calls voted, breaking the previous record by 345% with more than 10k votes. He worked for more than 20 years to pass Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, finally succeeding in 1986. He spoke out against the Vietnam war. He spoke out against McCarthy after taking over his seat calling him a "disgrace to Wisconsin, to the Senate, and to America." He understood that to bring spending under control, there isn't just one button you can push to solve everything.

We could use a few William Proxmire's in the Senate right now.

Even the best ones acquire enough baggage over time that's its hard to truly admire anyone. That guy who jumped in the fountain with that stripper was kind of cool I guess.

Minus the presidential election success, of course.

Didn't Jefferson send troops to fight in the Middle East? Ron Paul would not like that.

Paul held office for 12 years as a congressman. This is a question thread about each person's icon. So shut up with your peanut gallery posts, troll.

It may be media spin that recognizes that we need heroes, but I have an image of the president - any president - as a solitary guy trying to get things done while a big clown car of senators and congressmen do everything in their power to destroy progress. So regardless of the party, I tend to like the president and right now I have trouble thinking of any senator or congressman that I would pull from a burning aids tree.

That's the job of congress and the senate. The president was never intended to be a strong office with a hero. It's all backwards today.

Don't forget making the Louisiana Purchase. Nothing explicitly in the Constitution about being able to do that.
