As my dad drove me to my inbound train stop near Boston, I wondered, when I wipe politicians’ asses, should I go side-to-side or in a circular motion? Of course we all know that the answer is the latter but that’s beside the point. After working as a research assistant studying congressional politics in the fall and taking a course on international politics and the perplexing mess of international political theory, I figured I should see some actual game time and experience politics firsthand. So, over winter term I found an internship back home in Boston at the Massachusetts State House working in the office of a state representative.
