U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D) chatted with students of a Rutland High School government and economy class last week. The senator appeared via an high-speed Skype "videophone" link from his Capitol Hill office. Students chatted with Leahy and asked questions about energy, education, health care and other national and state-related issues. Apparently one student wasn't satisfied with Leahy's performance, according to a news report. The student claimed Leahy avoided answering some of the students questions directly.
