For students in grades 5 and 6 at the Leicester Central School, a study of the Constitution was followed by a direct online chat with Senator Leahy. The Senator discussed not only the Constitution with the students, but also the issues of global warming, health care, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and his career as a Senator. This was Senator Leahy’s first online chat with Leicester Central School. Several questions asked by the students during the chat, are listed below.

Do you spend more time in DC or Vermont?

Have you ever made a law?

Why did you choose to be a democrat?

Would you ever run for President?

What is the government doing about H1N1?

Has the President ever tried to take over another branch of government?
