Lee Hamilton won 17 straight elections as a Democrat in the conservative-leaning 9th District.

This week, Indiana University’s Center on Congress celebrates its first decade of existence. Its founder, former Congressman Lee Hamilton is a familiar name in southern Indiana. For 34 years, he represented the area in Washington, as well as serving on the Iraq Study Group and 9/11 Commission. WFIU’s Daniel Robison sat down with Hamilton to talk about what’s changed in Washington since he left office…and what’s stayed the same…

Part II: Interview with Lee Hamilton

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.

    I have only been in Bloomington & Indiana for 4 years & have a question about the Indiana’s ninth congressional district’s territory – past and present. I have admired Lee Hamilton’s work
    since before I came to IN and after moving here, thought: WOW! He represented Bloomington!
    This is not true someone told me. The district lines were redrawn to include Blooomington
    after Hamilton’s tenure in the Congress. Is this true?
