But Dingell has one great distinction. Remember when Al Gore was running for president and kept asking Bush what he thought about the “Dingell-XXX” bill (can’t remember the other sponsor)?
Gore was oblivious to the fact that he (and the bill) sounded ridiculous and that noone in the TV audience had any idea what the Dingell-XXX bill was, except that it had a silly name. But Al Gore thought it was a decisive debating point.
