Best Jimmy Stewart Imitation in Tennessee Politics 

Rep. Kent Williams

Just like in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Williams started as the handpicked stooge of the political establishment. In January, in a bargain with the 49 House Democrats, he shocked the Capitol by snatching the speaker's gavel by a single vote—his own. He was kicked out of the Republican Party as punishment. But since then, he has proven himself a decent, common-sense guy with the bizarre idea that legislators should come to Nashville, vote their consciences and then go home. JEFF WOODS
