Trivia: The Twilight Effect

C-SPAN's video of the Kagan hearings yesterday is divided into four parts.  As of today, the most popular is part one (43,000+ views), with the others trailing far behind: part 2 (6,000+ views), part 4 (3,000+ views), and part 3 (500+ views).  Unless interest has skyrocketed in the right to jury trial, the role of precedent, mandatory arbitration, and other topics in part one, I am going to venture a guess that Senator Amy Klobuchar's reference to the new Twilight movie made the difference.  Perhaps a Justin Bieber reference in part 3 could have helped?
