Ted Cruz (R-TX) is currently presenting as the leader of a “grassroots tsunami” calling for a government shutdown if the Affordable Care Act is not defunded, a much younger Ted Cruz was far more reluctant to mingle with the hoi polloi.

Says Damon Watson, one of Cruz’s law-school roommates: ‘He said he didn’t want anybody from ‘minor Ivies’ like Penn or Brown.'”
