|Well politics sort of begets politics. You know if you run for something, first thing you know somebody's going to ask you to run for something else,
||00:00:00.000 - 00:00:08.444
|and your ego starts running away from you and the first thing you know you're running for everything. I don't know how I happened to get into politics at State.
||00:00:08.444 - 00:00:18.051
|I was asked by Doc Ray to run and I did and I liked it, even though I didn't have much of a role as vice president of the freshman class,
||00:00:18.051 - 00:00:27.227
|but when I became president of the sophomore class I played a more integral role. As vice president of the student body I presided over the student legislature,
||00:00:27.227 - 00:00:36.080
|and then I became president of the student body. I had a wonderful relationship with the fraternities. I was never in a fraternity but they invited me to all their parties,
||00:00:36.080 - 00:00:46.987
|made fun of the white socks that I wore with a suit, but I took it in stride. At least I got to eat free. From there I just went on to law school
||00:00:46.987 - 00:00:59.693
|and became president of the student bar association.
