Moments In History
Featured in this "Moments In History" is Barney Frank (D-MA). Mr. Frank is one of the smartest and most powerful members of the Democratic Party in the U.S. House of Representatives. Recently asked about his support for Obamacare, he adroitly responded to the woman's question by cleverly answering a question with a question: "On what planet do you spend most of your time?" His ability to non-answer questions has served him well, while he's served the people of Massachusetts since 1981. In 1987, he made a surprise announcement that he was left-handed. In spite of this, he has been re-elected by wide margins ever since that personal disclosure. In this particular photograph, he is shown using his right hand, while calling Freddie Mac for a date.
