My dad retired from the Navy as a rear admiral. He was wooed by the beltway bandits who wanted his influence and connections. He wouldn't even consider it. But most of the politicians on Capitol Hill don't have the integrity my dad had in his little finger. As for Abramoff, well the verdict is out on him as far as I'm concerned. Is the man a Chuck Coulson? Or will he turn out to just be playing a new shell game? Pray for him.
