    Fox Television's Charlie LeDuff asked America to send him your nomination for the worst politician in the land. The people have spoken.It's Staten Island's Michael Grimm. Funny, since Grimm did "solemnly swear to support and defend the U.S. Constitution" as a marine, an FBI agent and member of Congress. So why does he have a big-ole federal indictment? Charlie LeDuff has the congressman on the run.

The cul-de-sacs. The corridors of power. We're in search of ourselves: The Americans. -- Charlie LeDuffPlay the video ...

    As you might of heard, the UAW went down to Chattanooga, Tenn. and took a bullet a few weeks ago when non-unionized workers at the Volkswagen plant told them to pack their carpet bags and head north.

    Now the question is: Why would a Southern man trust his future to a German company and not an American union? We deserve an explanation, since we not only bailed out the auto companies but also the pension fund of the UAW.
