In his quest to reach out to others, to leave his mark on the world, Michael Huffington has thought about being many things. The first-term congressman has thought about being a clergyman, a teacher and a filmmaker. During his youth, he experienced the discipline of military life in a private academy. In a restless career mostly in the oil and gas business, he also dabbled in the stock market, real estate and banking. He briefly held a high-level job in the Defense Department.
