- "If this body is not capable of action, I suggest new leadership is needed. I move for a Vote of No Confidence in Chancellor Valorum's leadership, not only because he is bad at this, but because he is old and ugly. Yech."

Finis G. Valorum was probably the biggest loser in the entire Star Wars Universe. At one point in time, he was the Supreme Chancellor of the entire Galactic Republic, so he was obviously a smart guy and knew how to play his cards right. He even survived an assassination attempt by John Wilkes Bith. However, shortly after becoming Chancellor, he was booted out because nobody in the Senate liked him, and, as a matter of fact, they threw in a "Vote of No Confidence", which pretty much means the Senate thinks you are really crappy.
Just when you thought this guy was an intelligent dude, he kriffed everything up. And, to make it worse, the fact that this bonehead was ditched opened up the gates for Palpatine and his plans of universal domination and destruction of the Jedi, which succeeded.
In other words, Valorum was a really cool dude, because he allowed the evil powers of the Sith to dominate the galaxy! Muahahahahaha!
After being replaced as Supreme Chancellor, Valorum was killed in a terrorist bombing on his freighter. Bits of his skull went back and to the left... back and to the left... back and to the left... the whole thing was planned by Palpatine, of course, and the Black Sun mafia, and the InterGalactic Banking Clan.
