List Rules List includes any politicians currently holding office that you wouldn't want to be stuck with in a confined space.

We all know people we just wouldn't want to get stuck in an elevator with. Maybe they're aggressive jerks, or maybe they'll babble your ear off about whatever thing they think is amazing that the rest of us couldn't care less about. We all have folks in our lives like that and some of them just happen to be annoying politicians.

If the unlikely scenario ever played itself out where you happened to be on an elevator with an important Congressperson, presidential candidate, or governor and it got stuck, there are some political figures you probably wouldn't mind chatting with, but there are certainly others that would be nightmare-inducing.

Not anxious to have Chris Christie bloviate at you while waiting for the fire fighters to rescue you? Are you concerned about Rand Paul blabbering about socialism or Darrell Issa blabbering about Benghazi or Joe Biden telling dirty jokes while you stand there helplessly? Then vote them up on this list! And if, hey, maybe it wouldn't be so bad to swap conspiracy theories with newbie reps Jody Hice or Joni Ernst for a few hours, vote them down.
