What a treasure trove of history!
ABC News speculates about the seating arrangements for the new U.S. Senators sworn in today.
However, most interesting is a Senate seating chart from the last Congress. If you click on a desk, “you see that since the beginning of the 20th Century it has been tradition for senators to sign the inside drawer of the desk. Click on desk 24 and you see the signature of Senator Barack Obama and also Senator Bill Bradley. Click on desk 83 and you see that Senator Ted Kennedy sits at the desk used by his brother Senator John F. Kennedy.”
