John Dingell's Long View



[Nixon] did some very good things and some very awful things.

Observer: Did you ever think about running for president yourself?

Dingell: I did, and I would always go fishing or something and get it out of my head. It's a terrible job. Look at the faces of the men who served as president and see how it ages them.

Observer: What will you do when you retire?

Dingell: Who knows? I'll figure out something. There's plenty to do. I've got a beautiful wife who's going to be elected to Congress. [Debbie Dingell immediately declared for her husband's seat.]

Observer: How would she be different from you?

Dingell: She's very different. If you knew her well and you knew me--there are strong similarities but enormous differences.

Observer: What are those differences?

Dingell: I don't feel free to discuss that, to be perfectly honest. I see things that she would rather I not comment on.
