We have written about Michael Ellis before. He’s a family friend, Dartmouth man, aide to Karl Rove (in 2004 and during Rove’s early Fox News days) and Mitt Romney (in 2007-08), Yale Law grad, Naval Reserve officer, and federal court of appeals clerk. To this impressive list, we can now add: Jeopardy winner.
Tonight Michael held off strong competition to win his first Jeopardy match, along with more than $16,000. He will return tomorrow.
I hadn’t watched Jeopardy in years. Tonight it looked like either the contestants have gotten better or I’ve lost something. Actually, I’m sure of the latter.
