Diana DeGette is the House Representative to the 110th Congress from Colorado's 1st District, the Fightin' 1st!
Stephen interviewed Congresswoman DeGette for part 25 of the
435 434 part series Better Know A District on June 22, 2006.
She is interested in becoming a member of the Mile High Club but first wants to look over the application, which Stephen assured her is rather simple.
She believes Condoleeza Rice is qualified to be President, but after Stephen thanked her for the endorsement, she flip-flopped and said she would support Hillary Clinton over Ms. Rice for the Presidency.
When pressed about her support for foreign endangered animals, like the Asian elephant, she promised to look into protecting the American elephant as well with a bill known as the Saving Territory Establishing Pachyderm Habitats and Elephant Natural Conservation Opportunites Labeling Boundaries Ensuring Rapid Transit or S.T.E.P.H.E.N. C.O.L.B.E.R.T. Act.
