U.S. junior Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut listens during FBI Director Robert Mueller's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill on Dec. 14, 2011. "This job is really the experience of a lifetime," Blumenthal said of his achievement on getting to the Senate. "And, the perspective is not just twelve months. It has to be twelve years and longer. This job is one, like the attorney general position, that can be developed."
