OKAY, MAYBE I'M RUNNING THE WHOLE Vice-President-as-legislator issue into the ground. But a reader sends this bit from the West Point admissions page:
Each Member of Congress has five cadetships or vacancies at the Military Academy. They may nominate up to 10 candidates to compete for each vacancy. . . . As a Member of Congress, the Vice President has five cadetships for applicants from the United States at large.
Kind of interesting.
