Whenever a new administration arrives in town, people from their state who want to work in various agencies move to Washington for jobs supporting the president and his/her agenda. For the last eight years, we've had a lot of folks from Texas--home state of President Bush (and defacto state of Vice President Cheney, who is really from Wyoming.)
Last night, while driving down Connecticut Avenue to get to I-66, I sat behind the car you see above you. Note the license plate. Alaska. I don't know if that's a sign of things to come or just pure coincidence, but come January we'll either start seeing lots of Illnois and Delaware plates or lots of Arizona and Alaska plates.
Just a reminder: Monday, October 6 is the last day to register to vote in Virginia and the District and Tuesday, October 14 is the last day in Maryland. If you haven't registered, get out there and get your name on the voter registration rolls so you can vote on November 4. Let your voice be heard!
P.S. Sorry for the crappy quality of the picture. I was taking it at a red light, so as not to be taking pictures while driving!
