Heard: Prehistoric Event

I was listening to C-SPAN radio during the confirmation hearing for Judge Sotomayor. During the break, C-SPAN radio broadcasted interviews with those citizens who had waited long hours to get tickets to the hearing. Two girls interviewed were from southern California and were in DC as, you guessed it, interns. Why did they wake up early to get a chance to hear questions and answers on legal issues that they will obviously not understand? In the words of one genius intern: "This is a prehistoric event". And yes, I am sure she said "prehistoric" and not "pretty historic".
