Political Divisions of the House of Representatives (1789 to Present)
This is pretty interesting. There have been wild swings in the political party that controls the house through the years. Things have been more stable the last 60 years, but it has a history of major changes. Have a look.

2. One Graph Would Make All the Difference In the World
or a set of pie charts. What's wrong with people who don't know how to present information in a transparent and useable format?
