He is one of those great public citizens. Great. Legislators totally devoted to our country. And really and building a better world. So I work with them. I was in congress eight years and what I was managing the Chrysler rescue. He was an enormous help because it had to come from the committee. I served on not his committee. Everybody knows that John is big with the auto industry has been. But he was also a major environmentalist and the conservation est he helped pass almost every important environmental piece of legislation in Washington in the last fifty years, pretty amazing sidelights, you know, he was a page in congress during World War Two.
