Hill;5/10/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 55, p24
The author reflects on the possibility of former Representative Cynthia McKinney running against Representative Hank Johnson in DeKalb County, Georgia. He argues that McKinney was in Congress long enough to build a record of insignificant worth that her defeat to Representative Denise Majette was a cause for celebration. He suggests that McKinney is unsuitable to be a member of the Congress because of her outrageous character.
