Rep. Keith Ellison

"Fatherhood is the most important and toughest job I've ever had. It's your job to nurture, guide and raise a human being. And that human being has the potential for great good. I don't think there's any father who hasn't felt a responsibility to make sure their children grew to their greatest potential," said Rep. Keith Ellison, pictured here with his daughter. "The most important lesson my father ever taught me is don't back down, have faith in what you know, beware of self-doubt, never abandon the idea that you might be right."
