Politico has a lovely Flash thingie on this page … as good as any I've seen, and far better than most. [Foolish that there's no image available for the site ... shows how ragged the web is, still, today.]
But it seems that folk are becoming conditioned to just grazing from whatever they find in front of them. Selecting from the thingies' menu system doesn't actually bring a user closer to a desired item but, rather, merely presents a different set of selections from the catalog.
