Democratic congresspeople Kendrick Meek and Jan Schakowsky both come from the kind of heavily left leaning, big city districts they could hold for life. Of course, Meek is cutting his tenure short to run for Senate, and Schakowsky almost saw her term --and life-- ended Mama Cass style. Thankfully Meek literally saved her life.
"He really knows what he's doing, given his experience," Schakowsky said, "And he told me later that the Heimlich can break someone's ribs if you're not careful, so that's why you pound on the person's back between grips."
