The Clinton-Gore Administration has left many citizens
deeply distrustful of public officials. But GENTLEMAN OF THE SENATE shows
that most men and women in government are honorable. Notable among them is
Orrin Hatch, a giant in the U.S. Senate. In an era when character counts
more than ever, the independent-minded Utahn is a model of courage,
compassion and integrity. GENTLEMAN builds on Lee Roderick's critically
acclaimed biography LEADING THE CHARGE: Orrin Hatch and 20 Years of America
(Gold Leaf Press, 1994.) It shows how Senator Hatch has used his clout to
help keep our country strong and free, improve lives of millions of
citizens, and curb the worst excesses of Clinton-Gore.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book is refreshing in that there are good decent people in congress. It covers the benefit of good values in our personal lives, the need for compassion to the less fortunate, and why honesty is still the best policy. Aside from those strong morals, the book is very informative as to the inner workings of the Senate process and how 'politics' is not for the faint hearted. Covers the very painful Clinton years in great detail.
