Former classmates described her as "eager," "bubbly" and "politically interested," according to the New York Times. But here's a plot twist fit for daytime television: As a student, Bachmann may have also been taught a lesson or two by Anita Hill, the woman who accused Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harrassment.

[Hill] was hired to address the bar association’s complaints that the faculty [at Oral Roberts] was overwhelmingly white and male, [Roger Tuttle, a former professor and dean] said.

Ms. Hill, now at Brandeis University, declined to be interviewed.
