Steve Marantz: "Once elected majority leader, Mitchell had a seat at an exclusive poker game whose stakes included the White House. Part of Mitchell's job was to prevent a second term for President Bush. Political writer Sidney Blumenthal described part of Mitchell's strategy in The New Yorker:
"With exquisite politesse and delicacy, through a protracted budget summit in 1990, Mitchell coaxed George Bush to abandon his iron-clad campaign pledge, 'No New Taxes' -- an act that repudiated the Reaganite theology and proved devastating to Bush politically."
