        The Accidental Operative | James Baker: The Man Who Made Washington Work

        Learn about some of the significant events in Baker's career that led to his transition from an attorney to a politician. One day, following a period of grief after his first wife's death, Baker received a call from his tennis partner George H. W. Bush. Bush was planning to run for one of Texas' senate seats, and he wanted Baker to help him run his campaign. Bush lost that senate campaign, but Baker got his first taste of politics and was hooked. This experience helped Baker work for President Ford, and even attempt his own political campaign.
