Bobby Baker's amazing history of the US Senate, the personal weaknesses of Senators

Politico has a long interview with Bobby Baker, long known as the top fixer in the US Senate.  Baker, a loyal Democrat, might have viewed the Senate through a slightly colored lens and much of the dirt seems to be on Southern Democrats or Republicans.  I have no idea how much of this is a result of the desire for political payback for the political corruption investigation that ended his career in 1963 and lead to an 18 month prison term, but it still makes for very interesting reading (see here and here for all the dirt).
