The Washington Post, 30-Mar-2011: “Hi! How you doing?” said Miss America 2011, Teresa Scanlan. “Great to meet you!” The blond bundle of enthusiasm before us Tuesday night at the Capitol Hill Club is just 18, but has the poise, ambition and firm handshake of a seasoned politician — which is what she wants to be.

“I would like to start out as an attorney, actually,” she told us. “I want to be in criminal prosecution as a trial attorney and hopefully become a federal judge.” Then politics: “I really think that it’s important for my generation to step up into those roles. . . . I constantly hear: ‘Stay out of politics. You don’t want to get in there, you’re too good for that!’ It really shows me all the more why we need to get involved.” Just the perfect sound bite when you’re in the nation’s capital, isn’t it?

Scanlan and a handful of state title holders who competed in January’s scholarship pageant blitzed through Washington this week, bringing their rhinestone crowns and wholesome glamour to the gray, cold city, including visits to the Capitol, the Croatian Embassy and a lunch on Wednesday at Cafe Milano.
