Default Re: RIP Henry Hyde

I grew up in Hyde's district. He came to a High School class of mine one day to talk about the Constitution. The one thing I remember about his experience was asking him about his experience confirming judges and him reminding me that the House doesn't do confirmations.

Of course, I didn't like his politics. In college, made it a point to not change my registration to my college town so I could vote against him. Besides the impeachment and abortion stances that everyone knows of, what I didn't like about him was his stance against expanding O'Hare Airport: he would cave in to the whining of the neighbors at the expance of the economic health of the whole city.
