Princeton Ties....SC Nom

Randomly from CQ Midday Update...

Ah, the old school tie. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., informed reporters this morning that he and Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr. share an alma mater: Princeton University. Alito graduated in 1972, Frist in 1974. "So very quickly people started sending me e-mails this morning," including one calling attention to the 1972 edition of the yearbook, the Nassau Herald. According to Frist, the final two sentences under Alito’s pic said, "Sam intends to go to law school and eventually warm a seat on the Supreme Court." Not so fast. First he has to get safely off the hot seat in the Senate Judiciary Committee, a perch that can burn a nominee.
