Political Power Rankings

May 17, 2006 04:39 PM

We here at NBS love rankings, from the Forbes 400 to People's Best Dressed.  And we love rankings about politics, too.  So we are delighted to report on the Power Rankings that have been compiled by the folks over at  Here are the rankings for our local pols, specific to legislative body (that means out of 100 for the Senate, and 435 for the House, you morons).

U.S. Senate:

7.  McConnell (R, KY)

26. DeWine (R, OH)

62.  Bunning (R, KY)

70. Voinovich (R, OH)

U.S. House:

33.  Boehner (R, OH-8)

169.  Davis (R, KY-4)

186.  Chabot (R, OH-1)

402.  Strickland (D, OH-6)

433.  Schmidt (R, OH-2)

Give it time, Jean.  Give it time.

More details on the methodology here.


Schmidt would move herself up a few notches if she'd just seek some good fashion advice!

By the way, who in the hell are the two people that rank below her? They must be REALLY bad.
