Statue on Grounds of the Capitol
After the Civil War, Hubbard served one two-year term as a U.S. Congressman from Connecticut, but he didn't like Washington, so he declined to be renominated. Eight years later he was elected Governor of Connecticut and he served one two-year term before declining to run again. For the rest of his career, Hubbard was one of Hartford's most illustrious lawyers.
I like a guy who has the ability to reach the highest level and yet walks away because he doesn't like it.
