Students With Conn. Ties Interning At White House

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Seven university students with Connecticut ties have been selected as spring interns at the White House.

About 200 unpaid, full-time internships are granted based on leadership potential and a desire for careers in public service.

The interns are assigned to departments throughout the White House, going as far up as the offices of Vice President Joe Biden and first lady Michelle Obama.

Five are Yale University students and two others from Connecticut attend Northeastern University in Boston and American University in Washington, D.C.

    Has anyone ever told you that you’re a jerk?

      You know, now that you mention it, no one ever has called me a jerk. Isn’t that odd. I mean, you would think the law of averages would say everyone gets told that they’re a jerk at some point in their lives. But not me. I guess that means that I am the only person on the planet who is not a jerk. WOO HOO! I’m going to Disney World!

    Obama & Biden looking for their very own Monica Lewinsky.

    Do either of them smoke cigars?
