Top Ten: Kanjorski

Today's offering comes from November 2nd, the last time "Congressman" Paul Kanjorski would go to his Nanticoke polling place.  He lost his bid for re-election that day.  When Kanjorski votes in the spring, it will be Mr. Kanjorski, or Atty. Kanjorski.

When I spoke with Kanjorski that morning, I got the distinct feeling that he knew his run in congress was about to come to an end.  He spoke from the heart that morning, and again that night in his concession speech.  Maybe if we had seen "that" Kanjorski during the campaign, the outcome would have been different.  Kanjorski and his handlers took a different path, and the rest is history.

Regardless of how you feel about his politics, Kanjorski has made a graceful exit from the stage.
