In 2007 he assumed the chair of the Appropriations Committee and is positioned to pursue his priority concerns for affordable health care, education, environmental protection, and a foreign policy consistent with American democratic ideals." "Here, in his autobiography, Obey looks back on his journey in politics beginning with his early years in the Wisconsin Legislature, when Wisconsin moved through eras of shifting balance between Republicans and Democrats. On a national level Obey traces the dramatic changes in the workings of the U.S. Congress since his first election to the House in 1969. And he discusses his own central role in the evolution of Congress and ethics reforms and his view of the recent Bush presidency - crucial chapters in our democracy, of interest to all who observe politics and modern U.S. history."--Jacket." ;
