WOW, Jimbo would have been 78. The was born on May 8, 1941. Some people did not like him other people loved him. I always liked to have him on the show because he was a great guest. He spoke his mind and you never knew what he was going to say next. He was a true Youngstown original. Traficant thought about running for president in 1988 and as you can see in the clip below some of the things he was talking about back then are still being talked about now. Look up some of his one minute speeches about trade and China and the boarder from the late 80's and early 90's. They are still talking bout this stuff and nothing have been done about it.
