Before Ben Jones was a U.S. congressman, his first public attention came as "Cooter," the sage mechanic in the hit '80s television show The Dukes of Hazzard. Now Jones is hosting a "Dukes" rally at his roadside business in rural Virginia. NPR's Linda Wertheimer talks to him about the celebration and about the phenomenon of Hollywood politicians.
