My 9th grade Citizenship teacher (1949) told us that electing lawyers to Congress was a bad mistake, since they "might" write laws that only they could understand. She said that the fact they could take either side of an argument "might" mean they would not strongly believe the very agenda points on which they were elected, and could change sides and not truly represent the people who elected them.
