A man in a rural county down south was campaigning for a seat in the Senate. One rainy, miserable evening there was a knock on the door. A man he didn't know stood outside, soaking wet. "I need help," the man said. "My car is stalled down the road. Would you help me?"

"Sure, " said the candidate. When they reached the disabled car, the owner got in and turned the key. The car started up immediately. "I don't understand," said the would-be-senator. "There was nothing wrong with your car."

The other man smiled. "I know, I also know that this state needs a good man up there in Washington," he explained. "I just wanted to know if your wer the kind of man I could vote for. Now I know. You've got me vote."
