John Dingell, 29, is sworn in as a member of Congress in 1955 by House Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas

When he retired, John Dingell was the longest-serving congressman in U.S. history.

He was sworn in on Dec. 13, 1955 which began a long career that lasted through 11 presidencies until the Democrat retired at the end of 2014. In retirement, he's not showing any signs of slowing down as he took some time from "celebrating the hell" out of his 90th birthday to join Lester Graham on Stateside.

Listen to the full interview above to hear Dingell talk about his lengthy career, what he is doing in his life after politics and his views on the current election.
