A democracy needs people like Izzy on the outside to keep it honest, but it also needs people on the inside to make it work --people who will play the game for the sake of getting good things done. But you have to be careful. Your first deal is like your first scotch. It burns, might make you feel nauseous. If you're like Izzy, once is enough. If you're like me, you get to like it. Then to need it.
