Best Purple Politician

Rep. Walt Minnick

Editors' Picks

Idaho's junior representative has become the purple elephant of the political scene; neither party knows quite how to handle him. He's a Democrat who is willing to cross the aisle, so the far left Democrats are not quite sure if they want to claim him. But he's a Democrat, therefore the far right Republicans want to hang him out to dry. But he's making it awful hard for both sides. If he would just stop standing in the middle and putting logic above party politics, it would make things a whole lot clearer.
