Senator Charles Grassley
SENATOR CHARLES GRASSLEY, Iowa
His strength was basically knowing the legislative process very well, working across lines, working hard. I mean, when Bob Dole wasn’t traveling someplace on a Saturday, he had his whole staff in his Kansas office here in the Hart Building working at least part of the day and maybe all day, for all I know. He had the ability to attract outstanding staff. But I think the most important thing was to just have the legislative process work, and the art of compromise.
