Who is Senator Joe Paine The other senator from Jeff’s state who had been in the US Senate for the last 20 years, and who, despite his good reputation and decent intentions, is generally controlled by corrupt political forces
Who is Clarissa Saunders? A sweet and very smart secretary in Senator Paine’s office who tries to help Jeff get used to political life after he arrived in Washington, and who later helps him expose the horrible corruption in his state
Who is Jim Taylor? A very rich, powerful and corrupt business man who runs a horrible “political machine”, through which he controls most of the politicians and many of the newspapers and other big businesses in his state

Who is Diz Moore? A cynical Washington reporter who wants to marry Clarissa Saunders
