Shuster follows route first steered by his dad

Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) likes to call himself an "SOB." As in "Son of Bud." That proudly advertised filial bond with retired Rep. Bud Shuster has shaped the younger man's career, from his initial 2001 run for Congress to his 2013 ascent to the chairmanship of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. When Bill Shuster surveys the committee's hearing room from the center dais, he sees the magisterial portrait of his father, who headed the same panel two decades ago, on the facing wall. But as Bill Shuster often volunteers, this is not his dad's Congress. "Back in the day, you could be a power player," he said in a brief interview last month. "Now you've got to be a finesse player."
