Randall Jeppesen, KSL NewsradioThe student who first started the protests against Dick Cheney at BYU is now getting ready to move on to bigger and better things.

BYU Student Democrats President Diane Bailey says she never realized how much attention would come her way by simply organizing a campus protest. "This has exploded way farther out than I thought it would go."

But after Cheney's visit, her thoughts will turn to her next adventure, interning in Washington, D.C., on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and special events for Nancy Pelosi's office. But did this protest help her get the job? Bailey says, "I received the internship before they had any idea that I was involved with this protest."

She actually got the internship through BYU's Washington seminar.
