Rooftop times with the Democrats

A D.C. moment for you...since we work with so many well-connected people, there are occasionally tickets floating around to various events that make their way down to the senior and associate level. Three of these tickets brought forth a Tuesday night where Dana and I, accompanied by co-worker Donna, found ourselves on the roof of some schmancy building at the corner of 7th and I NW, surrounded by members of the Democratic National...Committee?...Caucus?...something like that, enjoying wine and appetizers while liberal ideas flew all around us. Oh, and Nancy Pelosi had some words for the crowd, and I was about fifteen feet away from her while she shared those words. It's a good thing the Republican in me didn't come out too much, because she had a security detail in tow - the serious looking guys with the earpieces and all. So there you go, politico sighting...now that I've got the Speaker of the House out of the way, I'm going to set my sights on...oh, you know...the President. I hope he heads out for burgers again soon.

I'll tell you what, I am a liberal for all intents and purposes, but Nancy Pelosi just annoys the crap out of me!

Nice to know that characteristic translates across party lines.

Yay for political sightings!!! I hope you enjoyed the left-leaning conversation, even if you didn't agree with it.

Wow. You stooped this low just for free food and wine. I bet Rush Limbaugh wouldn't be happy with you.

Nancy Pelosi is an almost worthless politician, no doubt. Score the passed opportunity to argue with her as a big win.

It is always interesting to hear the other side's opinion - I try to approach all of this political chatter with at least a semi-open mind.

Trinity, you can add "amazing rooftop views" to that list, and Rush has gone a little loopy anyway. I'll try to get my way into a Republican event, but that team's a little beaten down these days.

Jason, you're right! Any attempts at conversation would have gone horribly awry.
