Remember, time is running out to apply for an internship in the office of Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho). The deadline is March 15, 2008, or when Senator Craig resigns, whichever comes first.
"For those interested in politics," Craig writes on his official site, the internship position represents "an incredible opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at how our government functions." Even if you are not particularly interested in government or politics, you may still have ample opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at something or other.
Among the senator’s primary mission goals:
- To deliver "high quality constituent service,"
- To protect the nation "while guarding our personal freedoms,"
- To ensure access to adequate health care and spacious, private restroom facilities, and, most importantly,
- To "defend and strengthen the traditional values of the American family."
As you fill out the essay portion of the internship application, you should remember that the senator takes an especially wide stance on many of the issues above.
