John Dingell has been in the House so long they had to carbon-14 date his office name plate to pin down how many terms he’s been there, but even after decades of helping bury the country in insurmountable debt, the family still obviously feels it has unfinished business in Washington.

Debbie Dingell is an experienced Democratic strategist who currently serves as chair of the Wayne State University Board of Governors. John Dingell has praised her as his closest confidant.

Debbie Dingell, 60, was 2-years-old when John Dingell was first elected to the House, subsequently becoming what Nancy Pelosi called a “lifetime public servant,” which is an oxymoron:
