I wasn't angry about it, and I accepted that the best candidate got the job. But I knew that the two Yale guys and their Senator letters, which they made a point of us knowing, were much stronger than what I, or anyone else brought along, and they ended up getting the job. It may have intimidated the other candidate, but hey, I wish them the best.

But I learned, next time I'll work harder in an interview, but I ended up at another agency, and possibly going on to the one I really want.
