Langevin is a Superman fan and wishes he could meet FDRFebruary 29th, 2012 at 4:41 pm by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes, On the Main Site
Congressman Jim Langevin’s public comments are usually about cybersecurity, job training and other weighty policy matters. But not when he does an interview with Heard on the Hill, Roll Call’s gossip call, for its weekly Take Five feature.
Did you know the 2nd District rep’s favorite superhero is Superman? That he still prefers printed books over e-editions despite being a tech guru? That he’s more of a football fan than a baseball aficionado? Langevin revealed all this and more.
The congressman’s most interesting comments may be about the historical figure he’d most like to meet: FDR, another Democrat who didn’t let his wheelchair keep him from Washington.
“He’s one of my great heroes and led the nation in one of the most challenging times in U.S. history,” Langevin said, adding that he’d like to find out “what gave him his courage and determination during challenging times.”
