Description

After a year spent snuffling through paper and hyperbole, a lobbying research firm has unveiled the 2006 Power Rankings, a list of who holds -- at least for the next week -- the real clout in Congress. The list appears in full on http://www.congress.org . It contains plenty of brand names and some surprising shifts, too, thanks to the 20 less-than-obvious factors that determine who lands where. Lawmakers who don't do much lawmaking tend to make up the bottom of the pile. But it's not only the number of bills a member backs but their importance, and the role a member took in the debate, that count.
