In fall of 1994, our Sorensen class (then the Virginia Institute of Political Leadership), met in Northern Virginia at George Mason University. The highlight of the trip was visiting Senator John Warner. On Friday night, as I recall, he was waiting for a vote to come up, so he visited with our class while he waited. Senator Warner asked us to each introduce ourselves, tell where we were from and share something about ourselves. When Cat Imhoff from Charlottesville introduced herself, she explained that she was employed by an environmental group. Senator Warner said, "Oh! You're a tree hugger!" We all laughed.
