FILE - In this May 15, 2007, file photo Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., prepares to photograph the annual Police Officers Memorial Ceremony, attended by President George W. Bush, on Capitol Hill in Washington. During his nearly four decades as senator, Leahy has captured official Washington going about its business, and pleasures, in photographs no one else has. Now third-in-line to the presidency himself, the Vermont Democrat, Batman enthusiast and Grateful Dead fan is in an even rarer position: near the top of Washington's power structure and deep in the details of its fiercest legislative fights.
