Congressman James Clyburn
President Barack Obama has said he is, "one of a handful of people who, when they speak, the entire Congress listens."  As Assistant Democratic Leader in the 113th Congress, the number three Democrat in the House, James E. Clyburn is the leadership liaison to the Appropriations Committee and one of the Democratic Caucus' primary liaisons to the White House.

His humble beginnings in Sumter, South Carolina, as the eldest son of an activist, fundamentalist minister and an independent civic-minded beautician, grounded him securely in family, faith and public service.
