Focusing on a candidate's high school years strikes me as silly. As silly as focusing on a candidate's old girlfriends. But reading through this slideshow on Mitt Romney's years at Cranbrook Schools, you can see his name just below that of former CIA analyst Paul Pillar in the Class of 1965. Assuming this is the same Paul R. Pillar, high school reunuions must get awkward when talk turns to Iran or counter-terrorism.
