Man of the People

Jim Doyle has all the qualifications to be a successful politician... And he's just been appointed City Councilman. He's a con man. He brings lots of "con" fidence to everything he does. He's a gambler. He likes a good race, especially if it's run by competitors with four legs. He's a hustler. Not necessarily one who'll make 12 campaign stops a day.
