We have such a rare politician today who understands the importance of compromise, and Senator Baker was a genius at that.
Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
Tennessee personal injury attorney G. Turner Howard III of the G Turner Howard III Law Office recalled the special qualities of former senator Howard Baker Baker in a recent interview aired on News Channel 9.
The Chattanooga-based TV station interviewed attorney Howard because he and the late senator both were graduates of The McCallie School, a boys college-preparatory school in Chattanooga.
“He’s the paragon of what politics can be,” G. Turner Howard said, according to News Channel 9. “We have such a rare politician today who understands the importance of compromise, and Senator Baker was a genius at that,” Howard said.
“When President Reagan got into some hot water, perhaps, over the Iran-contra situation, he brought in Sen. Baker as his chief of staff to make amends and smooth things over in a very classy fashion,” Howard said.
Baker died June 26 at the age of 88 from complications from a stroke. After serving as a U.S. senator and Senate majority leader, Baker worked as White House chief of staff for President Reagan and a U.S. ambassador to Japan.
G. Turner Howard is the founder of the Law Offices of G. Turner Howard III in Knoxville. After graduating from The McCallie School, Howard obtained his bachelor of arts degree from Tulane University. He went on to receive his law degree from the University of Tennessee College of Law.
Howard also holds a Master of Divinity from Andrews Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry from Columbia Theological Seminary. He served as a 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Army in Vietnam.
The News Channel 9 report cited is titled “Howard Baker’s Chattanooga Connection."
