Current (1993-2000) governor of New Jersey. Got some recognition for speaking at the Republican National Convention and for promising to lower state income taxes by 30% over three years (the mathematically literate, however, realized 10% a year does not equal 30% if it's not off the original amount.)

Currently embroiled in a scandal where she was photographed frisking a black man in Camden after the cops had already done so and declared the man innocent. Mind you, the man did end up in jail later on a different charge, but that doesn't make it right.

Due to term limits will leave office in 2001. She may someday run for Senate, or Vice President, or accept a cabinet post. Who knows?
