The Un-Typical Politician

Is there a typical politician? Once he was caricatured as an overweight cigar smoker, but political scientists have drawn a picture of a human being with strengths and weaknesses. Myles Platt has selected musical clips and sound bites from presidents and senators to look for "a common pattern of behavior."
