The word “Congress” literally means “the act of coming together and meeting.” The Constitution calls for representatives to “attend,” “assemble” and “meet.” Congress is a deliberative body and by its very nature that requires the people’s representatives to interact with each other both through formal proceedings as well as through the countless informal conversations that are the unique product of “coming together and meeting.”

Lost amidst the tumult of the last several weeks was the quiet passing of an outspoken leader of California – H.L. “Bill” Richardson. H.L., as he was known to his friends, arrived in the California State Senate with the freshman class of 1966, part of the Reagan landslide that year. For every one of the 22 years he served in the Senate, H.L. was a force to be reckoned with. He served for many years in the Republican leadership, but he was never, ever, a political insider. His enormous influence inside the senate stemmed from the fact that he never joined that club – he never lost sight of the people who elected him – and he not only worked tirelessly to serve them inside the capitol – he worked even harder to organize, inform and mobilize them outside the capitol.
