For students in the Semester in Washington Program, variety is the spice of political life. A diverse group of these students—conservative, liberals and the curious—chose to attend the  39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that took place February 9-11. Among the speakers at the conference were House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, former Governor Sarah Palin, and current presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.
